Lecture at the Wehle Center

Alabama’s military forces were fierce and dedicated combatants for the Confederate cause. In his study of Alabama during the Civil War, Ben H. Severance argues that Alabama’s electoral and political attitudes were, in their own way, just as unified in their support for the cause of southern independence.

Ben H. Severance is professor and chair of history at Auburn University at Montgomery. He is author of Portraits of Conflict: A Photographic History of Alabama in the Civil War.
