How have - and how should - the national soul-searching about the Confederacy and its legacies affect the way students of Civil War history engage with their subject? What does the future hold for the study of Confederate history in the wake of Charleston and Charlottesville?
The 2018 Elizabeth Roller Bottimore lecture will address those and other questions in what promises to be a thoughtful and freewheeling discussion between two of America's most prominent scholars and Civil War public historians - Dr. Gary Gallagher and Dr. Edward Ayers. Please note the new location.
The lecture will held on October 18th from 7:30pm to 9:00pm at the Ukrop Auditorium, Robins School of Business, on the University of Richmond campus. The event is free, but reservations are required.
