Union Command and Shenandoah Valley in 1864

Here’s Professor Joseph Glatthaar of UNC-Chapel Hill speaking about the Union command structure in the 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. This is a pretty good presentation and was part of the 2017 Nau Center Signature Conference at the University of Virginia.

The video’s description reads, “Joseph Glatthaar talked about the political intrigues within the Union Army’s high command in 1864 and the role those internal squabbles played in the Union’s response to Confederate General Jubal Early’s Shenandoah Valley campaigns, which included a raid on Washington, D.C. Mr. Glatthaar also discussed what the Union’s top general, Ulysses S. Grant, learned from these events.”
