Last Friday (June 5, 2009) I appeared as a guest on Gerry Prokopowicz’s Civil War Talk Radio show. Gerry asked questions about my forthcoming book, Scars to Prove It, which is due out next month from the Kent State University Press. We also talked about the Ambrose Bierce Project as well as my current book project, tentatively titled Southern Screech: A Cultural History of the Rebel Yell.
I very much enjoyed the experience, even if I was a bit tongue-tied at times. I thought Gerry’s questions were excellent, and his observations about American folk music have helped to focus my thoughts on the postwar development of the Rebel yell.
