An Interview with Glenn LaFantasie

Posted 11/14/2014 By David K. Thomson

Our conversation with Glenn LaFantasie, the Robert Frockt Family Professor of History at Western Kentucky University. In this interview, we discuss Dr. LaFantasie's most recent article entitled "Broken Promise" that appeared in the Fall 2014 issue of The Civil War Monitor. Dr. LaFantasie discusses the comparisons that were frequently drawn between Robert E. Lee and George Washington and how Lee ultimately failed to live up to Washington's "greatness."
