Book Talk: Exploring the American Civil War through 50 Historic Treasures
AUG. 10, 2021 | 3 - 4 PM ET | Exploring the American Civil War through 50 Historic Treasures brings together historic objects, documents, artwork, and the natural and built environments to tell the full story of this important event in American history. The American Civil War still matters because the war—its causes and its consequences— continue to influence America as a nation today. Through 50 fascinating historic items, this book discusses the causes and impacts of the war, slavery and its expansion, battlefield and homefront stories, technological and medical innovations, and the ordinary people caught up this massive national conflict.
