September 23, 2019 – What if your family name was infamous? What if you were the only loyal American in a clan where everyone — even your little, old grandmother — backed treason? Jane B. Singer introduces us to just such a man in The War Criminal’s Son: The Civil War Saga of William A. Winder. It’s the true story of Confederate General John H. Winder and his son, Union Captain William Andrew Winder, who served as prison commandants on opposite sides of the Mason-Dixon line.
Jane previously joined us to chat about another book from the period, Lincoln’s Secret Spy: The Civil War Case That Changed the Future of Espionage. She is a Civil War scholar and author of The Confederate Dirty War, the basis of the History Channel special, Civil War Terror.
