Book Talk with Steve Goldman

July 13, 2023 @ 6:30 pm 7:30 pm

Free Virtual Program

Steve Goldman delves into the federal law under which the Virginia legislature commissioned the Lee figure within the Grand Army of the Republic.

How did a statue of Confederate General in Chief Robert E. Lee, clad in his uniform, end up in the U.S. Capitol? What was the response of aging Union veterans, who had long considered him a traitor?

Stephen A. Goldman is a psychiatrist with decades of experience in academic and clinical medicine, and public health. Having treated and worked with combat veterans, he has deeply studied the Civil War, Reconstruction, race, and the impact of war itself. The only physician to serve on the Abraham Lincoln Institute Board of Directors, his thought-provoking findings have been welcomed on television, radio, podcasts, and other venues.
