Comment:
Lecture's were so strong, no one would want to miss class. Teaches from the perspective of a soldier on the ground during the Civil War. Awakens one to what these soldiers actually endured. Many special traits noted about famous people from this era you wouldn't know if you didn't take his class.

Comment:
As a CE major in the early 70's, I had to take 2 history courses. I hated history, but these were the most interesting courses I ever took. The man really does talk/lecture as though he lived during that era. Take his course.

Amazing professor! His lectures truly make history come alive, one of the greatest civil war historians in existence. To get an A go to every class and take thoughtful notes, read just a bit of the text when he tells you to, and enjoy.

Comment:
Professor Robertson is very knowledgeable on the Civil War. Let the fact be established. However; as a lecturer he has many flaws. First, he speaks too quickly, without repeating things enough. Second, he has what is either an accent or speech issue, so he can be hard to understand. I missed an exam and he let me make it up, so he's cool in my book

I am sick of the Dr. Robertson haters. He is the best professor at VT! I always looked forward to his lectures. Never a boring moment. Yes, the exams are difficult. Boohoo it's a 3000 level class. Get over it.

He is one of the best lecturers VT has. 2 tests and a difficult grade scale. His class if worth taking if you like the Civil War. Yes, he is unhelpful and an elitist snob.. He shows up late and is the first one out.

A very rude and miserable person. Robertson is quite full of himself and expects to be the center of attention, often blowing students off who need help or have questions.

you take your own notes, he talks so you can't understand him, cancels class so he's never there, and very rude when I went in to ask for help.
