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.

Here’s your chance to give in to that irresistible urge to look behind the “staff only” and “no entry” signs you always see in museums. What will you find? What treasures lie in store rooms and archives? As you tour the Blanchard house attics, closets, nooks and crannies, you’ll also hear stories about rarely seen collections items. The stories will change with every tour, so there will always be something new to learn.

Night of the Living Dead (1968): Panic ensues when a disparate group of people who've taken shelter in an abandoned house become prey for reanimated corpses. A true horror classic.

Do educators have a responsibility to create and sustain a campus environment of open discourse and rigorous examination of a range of viewpoints? How can schools prepare students to engage as active, curious, respectful citizens? In an era when speakers are being heckled or disinvited by campus groups whose perspectives differ, how can schools emphasize a culture of open-minded listening and vigorous debate? Under President Zimmer, an advocate of free expression as an essential element of American education, the University of Chicago has articulated a commitment to “free, robust, and uninhibited debate and deliberation among all members of the University’s community.” John Palfrey will interview President Zimmer about The Chicago Principles, the importance of academic freedom to our society, the relationship between free expression and privilege, and the future of free speech on American campuses before opening the floor to questions and comments from the audience.
