Lunchtime Lecture - War Time Destruction and Post War Politics in the South, 1861-1867
Thursday, May 7th, Noon
This year, 2015, is the final year the West Baton Rouge Museum is commemorating the United States Civil War Sesquicentennial. To help mark the 150th anniversary of the end of the civil war, the museum presents Dr. Paul Paskoff for a lunchtime lecture on May 7, 2015 at noon. Dr. Paskoff will present an illustrated lecture, “War Time Destruction and Post War Politics in the South, 1861-1867.” This talk will examine the physical destructiveness of the Civil War and the effects of the conflict on the politics of the immediate postwar years in the South. Dr. Paskoff will explain assertions to that effect are mistaken and have also helped to distort the history of the Civil War.
Admission to the lecture is free and visitors are welcome to bring their bag lunches to the lecture.
