The May episode of the Capital District Civil War Round Table Podcast was recorded in Galway, Ireland, with National University of Ireland Galway professor Enrico Dal Lago.
Dal Lago talked about his new book Civil War and Agrarian Unrest: The Confederate South and Southern Italy. The book places the American Civil War in the global context by comparing and connecting it to the Great Brigandage in Southern Italy in the 1860s. While historians have spent years looking at nation-building and social revolution in nineteenth-century Europe, Dal Lago offers a fresh perspective of the American Civil War by comparing it to the agrarian uprising that occurred in Southern Italy during Italian unification.
