Trading War Stories with Ed Bearss
4-Session Afternoon Course
Mon., July 14, 21, 28, and Aug. 4, 3 to 5 p.m.
Have you ever gone on a Civil War-themed study tour and come away amazed by the leader’s knowledge of that conflict? That’s how it has been with people who’ve followed historian Ed Bearss from battlefield to battlefield for decades. His encyclopedic knowledge of the Civil War and his engaging storytelling style have been a priceless addition to any endeavor he’s been involved with.
Now, think how great it would be to get a chance to ask him your own personal burning question. For the lucky few, in this four-part series he will answer whatever you want to know: Was General McClellan really such a fool? Did northern leaders really universally respect Robert E. Lee, even though he was the enemy? Did Montgomery Meigs really turn Lee’s home into a graveyard as revenge over the loss of his son?
It’s a unique opportunity to share some time with Bearss as you do the asking and let him—what else—do the talking.
Ticket holders will be given a special email address to submit their questions each week.
