HTP EP 54: Gettysburg And The Battle For Memory w/D. Scott Hartwig

The History Things Podcast

As the guys wrap up the 160th Gettysburg offensive, Pat and Matt have brought the legendary Scott Hartwig back on the show to talk about the aftermath of the battle, but also its place in historical memory. 

How did the veterans remember the largest battle ever fought on the western hemisphere? How did that memory affect the memorials and monuments of the time? Just as interesting is how the memory and memorialization changed as we got further away from the Battle of Gettysburg.

All this and much more is discussed in detail as part of The History Things Podcast wrap up of the Gettysburg Campaign!
