An Interview with Brian Matthew Jordan

Posted 7/10/2015 By David K. Thomson

Our conversation with Brian Matthew Jordan, a Lecturer at Gettysburg College and recent author of "Marching Home: Union Veterans and Their Unending Civil War," published by W.W. Norton. In this interview, Dr. Jordan discusses the experience of Union veterans as they navigated a post war society. In doing so, these veterans attempted to confront a war that did not see as finished and a northern public that did not understand.
