Last month, I had an amazing time speaking with Ed Ayers
and Liz Varon
, author of Southern Lady, Yankee Spy (an academic biography of Bet Van Lew), about Mary Bowser, and intersections between the historian's craft and the historical novelist's craft. Oh, and we happened to have this conversation in the Museum of the Confederacy, which is located in the former Confederate White House (aka the Gray House).
Sorry you missed it?
