Ongoing Opportunities

  • June 25 at 7 PM

Most studies of Civil War battles focus on soldiers and tactics. Little attention is paid to the civilians who found themselves caught up in these fights. Jay Graybeal, chief curator at the Army Heritage and Education Center, traces his great-great grandfather’s 36-year legal fight to recover damages from the Union Army's destruction of his crops during the Antietam and Gettysburg Campaigns. Doors open at 6:30. Space is limited, please arrive early.
