Hello H-CivWar readers,

today we continue with our multipart video interview series featuring 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 came out in June 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 continue to look at the ideology of newspapers with how U.S. papers used European papers:
