April 21, 2014: Best of with Robert Conner

Best of…

We talk with former Schenectady Gazette reporter Robert Conner about his book General Gordon Granger: The Savior of Chickamauga and the Man Behind “Juneteenth.”

This is the first full-length biography of the Civil War general who saved the Union army from catastrophic defeat at the Battle of Chickamauga, and went on to play major roles in the Chattanooga and Mobile campaigns. His actions sparked the first “Juneteenth” celebration.
