Foundry Series: Humans and the Environment

May 28, 2020 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm

Free Donations Encouraged

Humans and the environment are inextricably linked.  From disease and weather, to landscapes destroyed by battles, discover how this interconnectedness played out during the Civil War as armies struggled to deal with nature and left their impact on the environment.  How was the Civil War crucially important in shaping current American attitudes about nature and wilderness?  

Speakers:  Dr. Timothy Silver and Dr. Judkin Browning, Appalachian State University
