Book Breaks with Ty Seidule on "Robert E. Lee and Me: A Southerner's Reckoning with the Myth of the Lost Cause"
The Gilder Lehrman Institute’s weekly program Book Breaks features the most exciting history scholars in America discussing their books with host Gena Oppenheim live, followed by a Q&A with home audiences.

Join us online on Sunday, January 22 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. ET (11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PT) with Ty Seidule as he discusses “Robert E. Lee and Me: A Southerner's Reckoning with the Myth of the Lost Cause.”

Ty Seidule grew up revering Robert E. Lee. From his southern childhood to his service in the US Army, every part of his life reinforced the Lost Cause myth: that Lee was the greatest man who ever lived and that the Confederates were underdogs who lost the Civil War with honor. Now, as a retired brigadier general and professor emeritus of history at West Point, he has radically changed his view. As a soldier, a scholar, and a southerner, Ty Seidule believes that American history demands a reckoning.
Ty Seidule is a retired brigadier general, the former head of the history department at the United States Military Academy, the first professor emeritus of history at West Point, and the inaugural Joshua Chamberlain Fellow at Hamilton College.
