Here’s Ranger Bert Barnett giving a presentation as part of the 2017 Gettysburg National Military Park Winter Lecture Series. This lecture covers Augustus C. Buell, who wrote a book he claimed was his memoir of his service in the Civil War. Buell fabricated an enormous amount of material in his writings and plagiarized a number of items as well.
The video’s description reads, “Many stories have been spun about the American Civil War; some of them better than others. In the modern marketplace, everything from AK-47 wielding Confederates to a vampire-slaying Lincolns Permeates the battlefields in search of profit. With this as a backdrop, let us re-evaluate the scorned story of one soldier of the Union in ‘A Load of Buell?- Another look at the Cannoneer’ ”
