Sex and the Civil War
Airdate: Mar 25, 2017 @ 12:00 PM CST
Daniel Weinberg talks with Judith Giesberg about her book, Sex and the Civil War.
This is the first serious study of the erotica and pornography that nineteenth-century American soldiers read and shared; then links them to the postwar reaction to pornography and to debates about the future of sex and marriage.
