American History with Don Robb: The Civil War Era, 1850-1880

Thursday, October 18, 2018

In 1861, both the Union and the Confederacy claimed to be fighting for freedom. Both used the same marching song, 'The Battle Cry of Freedom.' Join Andover historian, Don Robb, for a fascinating series and discover why compromise failed, the real causes of the war, why we remember battles such as Antietam, Chickamauga, Chattanooga, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg and Spotsylvania, how the war changed America, and what Reconstruction meant to African Americans and the South. Registration is required. Sign up at Memorial Hall Library or at the Senior Center. Room locations may vary.
