Hello H-CivWar readers,

today we start another multipart video interview series with our guest Ann L. Tucker.

Recently, I had the opportunity to interview Ann Tucker via Zoom. We talked about her book Newest Born of Nations: European Nationalist Movements and the Making of the Confederacy, which comes out this week with the University of Virginia Press. The interview is broken up so that you can easily use the material in class.

Ann L. Tucker is Assistant Professor of History at the University of North Georgia. She is a graduate of the University of South Carolina. 

We start with a conversation about the origin of the book:
