There’s been a lot of activity over on our Civil War 150 blog recently. I thought I’d mention a few of the highlights here, since I suspect that not all of the readers of this blog follow the other blog on a regular basis.
There have been new additions to our First Wednesdays project:
- February: the Peace Conference and Fort Caswell
- March: the Arkansas Resolutions and Hardship
- April: Gov. Ellis reply and the Faison Letter
- May: Secession
- June: Henry Lawson Wyatt
Video from parts of the symposium “Contested Past: Memories and Legacies of the Civil War: A Conference to Commemorate the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War in North Carolina” (the first of three North Carolina Civil War Sesquicentennial conferences) is now available. See this blog post for a list of YouTube videos available via the Dept. of Cultural Resources.
