In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg—the deadliest fight of the Civil War and considered a turning point—the National Constitution Center presents a conversation with scholars Ted Widmer, Sean Wilentz, Judith Giesberg, and Adam Goodheart of the popular New York Times “Disunion” blog. In conjunction with the release of their new book, these insightful historians will provide social and political context for understanding the pivotal Gettysburg battle and the turmoil in America circa 1863.
