COURSE DESCRIPTION

Few  events have captivated students of American history like the Civil War.  Its battles are analyzed repeatedly, studied and “what-ifed” by  professional tacticians and tireless amateurs. Its profoundly dramatic  implications and moments have no parallels in our history, whether it be
friend fighting  friend, the end of slavery, or an entire society and way of life burned  away, sometimes literally. The war’s most striking personalities seem  somehow magnifiedand few among those personalities have ever held our  attention like General Robert  Edward Lee.

An Embodiment of the Confederacy Itself

With  his Army of Northern Virginia, he came to embody the cause of the  Confederacy    itself, inspiring a commitment from troops and civilians  that eventually overshadowed    even those given to its political  leaders and institutions.

How did this come to pass?

In a  war that produced no other successful Confederate armies, how was  Robert    E. Lee able to create and inspire an army whose achievements  resonated not only    across the Confederacy but also in the North, as  well as in foreign capitals    such as London and Paris?

Answers to the Most-Asked Questions about Lee

This course addresses and answers the most-asked questions about Robert E.    Lee and the men he chose to serve under him:

  • What was Lee actually like?
  • Was he someone whose character and ideasas some have claimedwere    mired in the past?
  • Was  he really an “old-fashioned” general who was too much    of a  traditionalist and gentleman to fight the kind of modern, ruthless war     demanded by the times?
  • Or  was he a brilliant and aggressive strategist and tactician who  understood    exactly the kind of war he would need to wage, the size of  his window of opportunity,    and the kind of senior officers he would  need if his strategy was to succeed?
  • How did he choose those officers, and what personal and tactical characteristics    did they share?
  • What experiences shaped them?
  • Why did they succeed or fail?
  • How  did what happened on the wars extraordinarily bloody battlefields     influence public opinion on the home fronts of both the Confederacy and  the    Union?
  • And how did that opinion, in turn, shape the actions of Lee and his    officers?

Gain a New Understanding of How the War Unfolded

This  course addresses these and other issues with an approach designed to  appeal    to everyone who wants to understand more about the Civil War  and why it unfolded    as it did:

  • Its  a course that will appeal whether your interest is in the    strategy  and tactics underlying its major battles or in the broader context     within which those battles took place.
  • If youre relatively new to exploring this conflict, these lectures    offer a refreshingly balanced starting point.
  • And  if youre already knowledgeable, this course will deepen your     appreciation of the decisions made by Lee and his generals and the  implications    they had both on and off the battlefield.

Perhaps  more than anything else, you gain a tremendous depth of insight into     how those decisions were a function of the individuals who made them.  You learn    how Lees choices in elevating these 15 men to high command  influenced,    for better or worse, the course of the war.

Guiding you through this human and strategic drama is Professor Gary W. Gallagher,    whose 48-lecture course on The American Civil War remains one    of our most popular.

Professor  Gallaghers teaching, writing, and research skills have made    him one  of the most respected Civil War authorities in the world.

Meet the Men Who Waged the Confederacys War

As  you would expect, these lectures contain vivid portraits of the men  whose    names are familiar to anyone with even a passing curiosity  about this great    conflict:

  • Lee  himself, whose striking appearance undoubtedly                               helped contribute to the almost mystical aura with                               which many authors have endowed him but whose experiences                               serving under the famous Winfield Scott in  the war                              with Mexico taught him invaluable  practical lessons                              about modern warfare.
  • Lees  skill at managing military resources and                            his  awareness that audacity and ruthless aggressiveness                             can contribute to victory against a more powerful opponent                             threatened to disrupt the Union war effort more  than                            once.
  • “Stonewall”  Jackson, whose dogged purpose                              and  initiative helped forge, with Lee, a military                               partnership second only to that of Ulysses S. Grant                               and William Tecumseh Sherman.
  • “Jeb”  Stuart, the great cavalryman whose                               flamboyant battle dress, complete with scarlet-lined                               cape, yellow sash, and an ostrich plume in his hat,                               belied his superb skills at reconnaissance and  screening,                              the crucial responsibilities of  Civil War cavalry
  • James  Longstreet, whom Lee warmly greeted as “my old war-horse”    and who  served as Lees senior subordinate throughout Lees tenure    at the  head of the Army of Northern Virginia.

And youll  meet others as well, from the profane and acerbic Jubal A.    Early, a  West Pointer who had chosen law over the military before joining the     Confederate forces, to a fascinating group of younger officers.

You  also learn how Lees officers were often distinguished by extraordinary     aggressiveness and courage on the battlefield, often at great  personal cost.

A Human-Sized Look At the War

Among them was a young general named Stephen Dodson Ramseur, who was mortally    wounded at the Battle of Cedar Creek.

The  retreating medical wagon carrying him from the battlefield was captured     by Union forces. And Professor Gallagher paints a deeply moving  scene of several    Union officers who had been cadets with Ramseur at  West Pointincluding    George Armstrong Custercoming to sit with him  through the night until    he died.

This West Point connection was not an isolated incident.

With  a wealth of officers who had been trained at West PointLee himself     had been superintendentalong with those who had come from prestigious     academies such as the Virginia Military Institute and The Citadel, the  Confederacy    had a distinct advantage in the depth of its officer  corps.

This was especially evident during the first two years of  the war, when many    young Union officers were still gaining  experience in military basics.

The Confederacys Extraordinary Problem of Attrition

Ramseurs death also illuminates the extraordinary problem of attrition    faced by Lee.

You  learn that in this last war in which generals actually commanded from  the    front, attrition among the Confederacys generals sometimes  exceeded 25    to 30 percent in a single campaign.

The struggle to replace them forms a leitmotif throughout the history of Lees    army.

Examine the Idea of the “Lost Cause”

Professor  Gallagher concludes the course with a highly critical look at the     body of post-war writings embodying the viewpoint that came to be known  as the    “Lost Cause.”

This viewpoint, much of it orchestrated  by Jubal Early, shunted aside the issue    of slavery and used States  rights and other arguments to defend the Confederacys    actions. It  emphasized Lees greatness and the Unions massive advantage    in men  and other resources.

You learn that although most modern  historians have long abandoned it, the “Lost Cause” continues to be  evident in popular conceptions of the war.
