Join educator (and Civil War buff) Mike Trebilcock for an interactive program looking at all aspects of the American Civil War – from its causes to its legacy and memory. Anyone with an interest in the Civil War, expert and novice alike – is encouraged to attend.
After a summer of costly Confederate losses at Gettysburg and Vicksburg, the Confederates will win a timely, but costly, victory at Chickamauga in Georgia. The Confederates lost nearly 20% of their fighting men in this battle (the 2nd bloodiest battle of the entire war and the deadliest fought in the Western theater).
The Confederate Army of Tennessee led by the controversial Braxton Bragg will break the Union line after 2 days of fierce fighting and force the Union army under William Rosecrans back to Chattanooga where they will be put under siege. In this program we will discuss the causes, course, and outcome of Chickamauga plus its consequences. We will also encounter some new (George H. Thomas, Nathan B. Forrest) and familiar (James Longstreet) commanders.
Reserve your spot below or by calling 989-633-3700! Online registration is available up until 2 hours prior to the program start time. If you are attempting to register less than 2 hours prior, please call 989-633-3700 for assistance.
Trailside Civil War registrants: Please enter through the main entrance or by the library and proceed directly to room 160. There will be an extra lunch sign-in sheet there so that you will not need to enter Trailside until after the program. This helps our Line Dancing group that meets in Trailside at the same time to remain uninterrupted. Thank you!
