Hour 2: Gettysburg and Antietam are two of the most well-known battles of the Civil War. But some historians argue that equally important battles were fought further west. We’ll explore the war’s Western theater this hour with TCU professor Steven Woodworth. He’s featured in the new PBS five-hour documentary series Civil War: The Untold Story, which airs beginning Thursday on KERA-TV.
Woodworth’s latest book is Manifest Destinies, which the Dallas Morning News reviewed in 2010.
