Grand Army of the Republic Veterans and Integration

Here’s Professor Barbara Gannon speaking about the Union veterans group, the Grand Army of the Republic, after the Civil War and how they remembered the war. This is another presentation from this past summer’s symposium at Pamplin Park featuring a group of all women historians.

The video’s description reads, “Author Barbara Gannon talks about her book, The Won Cause: Black and White Comradeship in the Grand Army of the Republic. She describes how the Union army’s largest veterans’ organization often had integrated chapters and treated African American soldiers equally. This talk was hosted by Pamplin Historical Park.”
