Matt Crawford speaks with author Shannon Bontrager about his book Death at the Edges of Empire. How has the burial and commemoration of our war dead shaped our history and our culture? What was Lincoln promising to those who died on the Civil War battlefields in his Gettysburg Address? Bontrager examines these aspects of our past and explains how they continue to shape the lens through which we view our past. A fresh and captivating look at a piece of our history I hadn't understood until reading this book.
