News from Hartford’s Old State House:
After four years of remarkable events that have dotted every region of Connecticut, the Civil War Commemoration is coming to a close. On the 150th anniversary of General Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Court House, commemorate the end of the American Civil War at the Old State House.
Join Dr. Matthew Warshauer, co-chair of the Connecticut Civil War Commemoration Commission and author of Connecticut in the American Civil War: Slavery, Sacrifice, and Survival, as he provides a riveting account of the war’s final days, the war’s toll on Connecticut and how the state’s residents attempted to make sense of so much loss.
Dr. Warshauer will also discuss the Commemoration Commission’s driving goal of considering what historians 50 years from now, at the bicentennial, will say about the efforts to learn our Civil War history.
