Fallen Leaders: Confederate General Earl Van Dorn

Here’s Matt Atkinson giving a typically excellent presentation on Earl Van Dorn. This was part of the Emerging Civil War 2021 “Fallen Leaders” symposium.

The video’s description reads, “Gettysburg Park Ranger Matt Atkinson discussed Confederate General Earl Van Dorn’s largely unsuccessful military career and his death. In May 1863, while at his Tennessee headquarters, he was shot by a man who claimed Van Dorn had an affair with his wife. This program was part of the ‘Emerging Civil War’ blog’s annual symposium.”
