A Virginia-based podcast discussing history, books, film, music, and pop culture.
It’s Graham Dozier Day on American Rambler! Graham is the author and editor of A Gunner in Lee’s Army: The Civil War Letters of Thomas Henry Carter, which is available through University of North Carolina Press. The book contains 100 letters written by Carter, an artillery officer in Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. Graham is also the editor of the Virginia Magazine of History and Biography at the Virginia Historical Society.
In this, the first interview on American Rambler, Colin talks with Graham about his early love of Egyptian history, his Yankee roots and college days at Virginia Tech, and his love of classic rock bands.
It’s a talk that lasts about an hour and 45 minutes, and it’s a good one.
