He's not a critic

Some pieces on Gary Gallagher's new book are beginning to appear and they are focusing on the film aspects rather than the literature, paintings, etc.

Charlottesville Daily Progress: "I’m not an art critic. I’m not a film critic."

Star News: "Gallagher does useful service, however, by giving notice to powerful, complex films..."

Boston Globe: "... it is almost impossible to convey to a modern audience why the Union meant so much."
