Annual Lee Lecture: “The Civil War Memoir Market Minus the Book by Lee” with Dr. Stephen Cushman, University of Virginia

Dr. Stephen Cushman to speak at Stratford Hall. Dr. Cushman is a poet and scholar of American literature and the Civil War. His recent books include The Generals’ Civil War: What Their Memoirs Can Teach Us Today (2021). He is co-editor of Civil War Witnesses and Their Books: New Perspectives on Iconic Works (2021), and Civil War Writing, 1866-1989: New Perspectives on Iconic Texts. Dr. Cushman is the Robert C. Taylor Professor of English at the University of Virginia.

How did market forces shape the production of Civil War Generals’ memoirs and influence memories of the war? What can these texts tell us about current conflicts over the history and meanings of the Civil War? Join us in the duPont Memorial Library at Stratford Hall on January 20, 2024 to find out!

This program will be offered in-person and virtually. Pre-registration is required.
