Brett’s Summary: Larry J. Daniel, Methodist minister and expert on the Western Theater, discusses his new book on the Army of the Cumberland and other issues with Gerry. Daniel covers the leadership of the Army of the Cumberland, including Alexander McCook, Thomas Crittenden, George Thomas, and William Rosecrans. Daniel has a lower opinion of Thomas than most, and he chuckled while recalling some of the Thomas fans he has corresponded with in the past. Daniel also covers some of his other
thoughts on the Western Theater and why he believes it is more important than the Eastern Theater.
Civil War Talk Radio airs most Fridays at 12 PM Pacific on World Talk Radio Studio A. Host Gerry Prokopowicz, the History Chair at East Carolina University in Greenville, North Carolina, interviews a guest each week and discusses their interest in the Civil War. Most interviews center around a book or books if the guest is an author. Other guests over the years have included public Historians such as park rangers and museum curators,wargamers, bloggers, and even a member of an American Civil War Round Table located in London, England.
In this series of blog entries, I will be posting air dates, subjects, and guests, and if I have time, I’ll provide a brief summary of the program. You can find all of the past episodes I’ve entered into the blog by clicking on the Civil War Talk Radio category. Each program should appear either on or near the date it was first broadcast.
