About This Show

The Civil War saw some of the bitterest battles ever fought by American soldiers. According to Winston Groom, distinguished Civil War historian and author of the bestselling Forrest Gump, one battle set the stage for those to come. In his new book, Shiloh, 1862, Winston Groom gives a masterful account of the Battle of Shiloh, which marked a violent crossroads in the war.

 Winston Groom joins Dr. Edgar to talk about his new book, and about his career. Groom is the author of 15 previous books, including Vicksburg, 1863; Forrest Gump, which is now celebrating its 25th anniversary; and (with Duncan Spencer) Conversations with the Enemy, a Pulitzer Prize finalist.
