Kevin Adams - Class and Race in the Frontier Army 1870-1890 - Kevin Adams is a historian at Kent State. Kevin's new study of the late nineteenth-century frontier U.S. Army explores the lives of the enlisted men and officers through the prisms of race, class, and ethnicity. It is a fascinating study that considers whether the physically isolated frontier army was really that separated from the rest of American society.
His first book is Class and Race in the Frontier Army: Military Life in the West, 1870-1890 (amzn.to/31D4Lta)
If there’s anything that we can’t get enough of, it’s smart people. And so it happens that smart people write books. So read Kevin’s book, listen to this episode, and hey, you may create some new abrasions in that gooey mush we call a brain. Then we’ll have you as a guest. JK, BIDS only knows of smart listeners.
