The Art of Manliness Podcast #41: The Gentlemen & The Roughs With Dr. Lorien Foote
Posted By Brett On February 22, 2013 @ 4:20 pm In Podcast | 5 Comments
Welcome back to another episode of the Art of Manliness podcast!
A few months ago we did a massive series on the history of manly honor  in the West. In one of the posts, we explored what honor meant to men living in the American North at the time of the Civil War  and how different codes of honor clashed in the Union Army. One of the sources we used while researching for that post was a fascinating book entitled The Gentlemen and the Roughs: Violence, Honor, and Manhood in the Union Army .
In today’s podcast, I talk to the author of that book, Dr. Lorien Foote. Dr. Foote is a professor of history at the University of Central Arkansas where she specializes in 19th century American history.
Highlights from the episode include:
If you enjoyed our series on manly honor, I highly recommend finding a copy of the Gentlemen and the Roughs.  Out of all the books we read on the history of honor, this was definitely the most enjoyable and interesting read.
