Gettysburg Speaker Series

Gettysburg Speaker Series

On June 8, from 9 – 10 am at Cabell Hall join speaker Gary
Gallagher for a speaker series on Gettysburg. It stands as the
great turning point of the Civil War. Ken Burns’ influential
documentary, The Civil War, reinforced this viewpoint, devoting
far more time to Gettysburg than to any other military event of
the conflict. This lecture will challenge the idea of Gettysburg as
an important turning point and explain why so many people hold
on to a mistaken impression.
