On a very special Foreign Entanglements, Rob and Kevin discuss the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. Kevin begins by sketching out the strategic situation of 1863 and the course of the battle itself. Rob and Kevin then discuss how memory of the battle has changed over time, focusing especially on how racial issues reshaped commemoration between 1913 and 1963. They conclude by speculating about what may come next. Will anyone remember the anniversary of Reconstruction?
