"Four Score Speaker Series with Dr. David Silkenat"
Join Dr. Christian McWhirter, ALPLM Lincoln Historian as he interviews Dr. David Silkenat, Professor at The University of Edinburgh, about his latest book, "Raising the White Flag: How Surrender Defined the American Civil War". Dr. Silkenat provides the first comprehensive study of Civil War surrender, focusing on the conflicting social, political, and cultural meanings of the action. Looking at the conflict from the perspective of men who surrendered, Silkenat creates new avenues to understand prisoners of war, fighting by Confederate guerrillas, the role of southern Unionists, and the experiences of African American soldiers. The experience of surrender also sheds valuable light on the culture of honor, the experience of combat, and the laws of war.
