It was the largest Blue and Gray reunion ever held. Leaders north and south praised it as the moment our nation finally reconciled the Civil War. Did the veterans feel the same way? What did this week-long celebration mean for them, numbering in the thousands, to return to a place of trauma and come face to face with their old enemies? Based on his recent book on the subject, Dr. Thomas Flagel explores this iconic event where combat survivors were presented as gods of war.

This lecture is part of the "Celebrating Our American Heritage" lecture series.
