About

The Outlaw History Podcast is a platform where historians share their enthusiasm for history. I conduct weekly interviews with historians inside and outside of the academy. We discuss the development of their interest in history, how they came to find their specialization, and the work they have or will create. People love to talk about their passions, and people love to hear others talk about their passions. The Outlaw History Podcast is born from my lifelong obsession with history and the inherent desire of all scholars to share their knowledge with the world.

In addition, I'm a PhD student early in the dissertation phase. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons, I was not able to reach this point in my study until my Teaching Assistantship was in its final semester. Support for the podcast not only helps me create content for my patrons, it also gives me the freedom to work full time on my dissertation so I can complete my PhD as quickly as possible. The sooner my graduate work is complete, the sooner I can begin working full time to correct the ahistorical narratives of the American Civil War which continue to permeate and degrade American society in general and southern society in particular.

My name is Roy "Trae" Wisecarver III. I'm a PhD student in the Department of History at Texas A&M University. My dissertation is titled "Conditional Unionists, Conditional Confederates: Loyalty in Civil War Arkansas." My TEDx Talk, "A Southern Historian's Lost Cause," in which I discuss how the South can come to terms with its true history, has been viewed over 3,300 times as of this writing. A video that I posted on Twitter in which I spoke about the need for more professional public scholarship on the Civil War, has been viewed over 230,000 times. I work to correct American memory about the Civil War so that it reflects the historical record rather than the propaganda of postwar generations.

Please consider supporting me in these efforts. Thank you for reading.
