Calendar Details for 02 Mar 2019

American Civil War Museum 2019 Symposium
Start Time: 9:30 AM
End Time: 4:00 PM

The 2019 Symposium will share with attendees some of the ideas and insights that have informed the planning of the Museum’s new flagship exhibition, “A People’s Contest: Struggles for Nation and Freedom in Civil War America.” The symposium will feature the historian advisers who helped shape the exhibit lecturing on the importance of military history, of African Americans, and of Southern Unionists, and fundamental questions of causation and “contingency” in the Civil War.

In addition to the historian advisers, the symposium will feature a keynote address by Jon Meacham, the Pulitzer Prize-winning biographer of Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, George H. W. Bush, and most recently, author of The Soul of America: The Battle for Our Better Angels. The symposium will be held at the Library of Virginia (800 E. Broad St., Richmond, Virginia, 23219) on Saturday, March 2, from 9:30 a.m. – 4:00 pm.
