Author Talk with Elizabeth R. Varon
Join Christian McWhirter, ALPLM Lincoln Historian as he interviews Elizabeth Regine Varon, author of "Armies of Deliverance".

ELIZABETH R. VARON is a Professor of American History at the University of Virginia and received her Ph.D. from Yale. She also is a specialist in the Civil War era and 19th-century South. In addition, she has written 5 books and Varon's most recent book, "Armies of Deliverance: A New History of the Civil War" was named one of the Wall Street Journal's Ten Best Nonfiction Books of 2019.

Loyal Americans marched off to war in 1861 not to conquer the South but to liberate it. So argues Elizabeth R. Varon in "Armies of Deliverance", a sweeping narrative of the Civil War and a bold new interpretation of Union and Confederate war. "Armies of Deliverance" offers innovative insights on the conflict for those steeped in Civil War history and novices alike.
