April 13 – Ryan Quint: “A Troubled Town: Dranesville and its People, 1861”
Here’s Ryan Quint of Emerging Civil War giving a nice presentation on the little-known 1861 Battle of Dranesville. I really like it when people cover things that rarely get covered in most histories.
The video’s description reads, “Ryan Quint talked about the Battle of Dranesville, fought in Northern Virginia in December 1861. He argued that the conflict, while not well known, is significant because it was the first victory for the Union after several defeats early in the war. This talk was a part of a ‘Forgotten Battles of the Civil War’ symposium hosted by the ‘Emerging Civil War’ blog.” The video is about 50 minutes long.
