Based on archival research supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Dr. Sarah E. Gardner, Distinguished University Professor of History at Mercer University, will discuss not just what books Union and Confederate soldiers read during the U.S. Civil War, but how and why they read. What was the value of reading literature for Civil War soldiers, North and South? Which books did they like best, and why? Did Confederates like different authors than their Union counterparts? Is there any truth to Mark Twain's claim the Scottish Romantic writer Sir Walter Scott "had so large a hand in making Southern character, as it existed before the war, that he is in great measure responsible for the war"?
