March Through History

Join us this Sunday at 2pm for March Through History: The Civil War Soldier, a high energy interactive program.  Our presenter, Ken Gavin, will be in period Union army dress and interprets a soldier from the 28th Pennsylvania Regiment.  He discusses his reasons for joining the Union army, why he is fighting, his transformation from being a civilian to a soldier and battle experiences.

This program is funded by Civil War 150: Exploring the War and Its Meaning through the Words of Those Who Lived It is a national public programing initiative designed to encourage public exploration of the transformative impact and contested meanings of the Civil War through primary documents and firsthand accounts. The project is presented by The Library of America, in partnership with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of America, and is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
