An Interview with Ben Wright and Zach Dresser

Posted 9/20/2013 By David K. Thomson

Our conversation with Ben Wright and Zach Dresser, editors of "Apocalypse and the Millennium in the American Civil War Era," forthcoming from LSU Press. In the interview, Wright and Dresser discuss the origins of the ideas that led to the initial conference at Rice University and how it morphed into an edited collection. They also share their insight on millennialist thought in the Civil War Era. Wright and Dresser also offer some wonderful advice for history graduate students.
