Understanding the Gettysburg Battlefield’s Monuments: Local Historian Scott Hancock Shares His Thoughts [Episode 32]

Over the July 4 weekend there was a lot of excitement in Gettysburg as hundreds of armed visitors surrounded monuments on the Gettysburg Battlefield.

This week I had a chance to talk with an expert on the Civil War and the Gettysburg monuments, Dr. Scott Hancock, Associate Professor of History and Africana Studies at Gettysburg College.

Dr. Hancock studies the African American experience from the mid-seventeenth century to just before the Civil War and has recently spoken about the history and meaning of the Gettysburg monuments and how education can help us better understand them.
