I wrote about the first day of the 2016 Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College here. C-SPAN has now posted the videos from that evening’s lectures and they’re available.
David Silkenat of the University of Edinburgh talked about “An Honorable Defeat: The Confederacy and Reconstruction.” You can see it here:
Mark Summers of the University of Kentucky gave an outstanding presentation on “The Questions of Reconstruction.” If you have time for only one video, make it this one first.
Finally, Barbara Krauthamer of the University of Massachusetts-Amherst spoke about “Envisioning Emancipation: Black Americans and the End of Slavery.”
You can see her presentation here:
You can also view an earlier presentation she gave at the National Archives in 2013 here:
