Episode Description

Anthony Gaughan, author of "The Last Battle of the Civil War, United States Versus Lee, 1861-1883" CWTR Episode 914 (Season 9, Show 14) Show#251 Gerry's Introduction: “…today our topic is the Last Battle. That, of course, means Bentonville, North Carolina 1865? No. It means Appomattox in Virginia in April 1865? No, not that either. How about CSS Shenandoah in the wastes of the North Pacific, fighting Union ships months after the shooting stopped on land? No, it’s not that either. It’s the battle on the United States vs. Lee and the battleground is the United States Supreme Court. Our guest, Anthony J. Gaughan is the author of “The Last Battle of the Civil War, United States Versus Lee, 1861-1883" and we will find out about this fascinating legal encounter today, on Civil War Talk Radio.”
