Dr. Richard J. Sommers, author of Richmond Redeemed, recently reprinted in a Second Edition by Savas Beatie, recently gave a talk about leadership at the Siege of Petersburg which aired on CSPAN. Luckily for us, as Dr. Sommers writes in an email, it’s now available online:
C-SPAN filmed a presentation on “Richmond Redeemed: Enduring Lessons in Leadership from the Siege of Petersburg” which I delivered at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center on October 15. The network broadcast the program in its “America History TV” series on November 29. A link to that broadcast is given below:
