Professor Emeritus George C. Rable was recently featured on the American Heroes Channel’s documentary series Blood and Fury: America’s Civil War, where he was interviewed for their “Battle of Fredericksburg” episode. Rable is the author of Fredericksburg! Fredericksburg!, which details the battle and is the recipient of the Gilder Lehrman Lincoln Prize (2003), The American Civil War Museum’s Jefferson Davis Award (2002), and The Society for Military History’s Distinguished Book Award in American History (2004).
Rable has been featured on television before on C-SPAN and the History Channel. “It’s always interesting,” says Rable, noting that they filmed the piece in the historic Jemison-Van de Graaff Mansion in downtown Tuscaloosa. Always humble, Rable says he was very flattered to be asked and is “reasonably satisfied” with how his segments turned out.
The episode is available to watch online on AHC’s website.
