9781469606835: Causes Won, Lost, and Forgotten: How Hollywood and Popular Art Shape What We Know about the Civil War (The Steven and Janice Brose Lectures in the Civil War Era)

More than 60,000 books have been published on the Civil War. Most Americans, though, get their ideas about the war--why it was fought, what was won, what was lost--not from books but from movies, television, and other popular media. In an engaging and accessible survey, Gary W. Gallagher guides readers through the stories told in recent film and art, showing how these stories have both reflected and influenced the political, social, and racial currents of their times.

Book Description:

"Gary Gallagher dissects art and cinema with a historian's eye and the heart of a 14-year-old watching Shenandoah three times in a row. In crisp and compelling prose, he shows that winners don't always write the history. More than 140 years after Appomattox, the cause of the Union is still missing in action on the screen and canvas. This book is a must-read for anyone who cares about the power of popular culture to shape memory of the past."--Tony Horwitz, author of Confederates in the Attic

About the Author:

Gary W. Gallagher is John L. Nau III Professor of History at the University of Virginia and author or editor of numerous books, including Lee and His Army in Confederate History and The Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864.
