Civil War Media Club:  A Thousand May Fall

Wednesday, November 3  |  6:30 – 8pm  |  $5 ($10 non-members)  |  Location: Civil War Museum  |  Register Here by November 1

In A Thousand May Fall, Pulitzer Prize finalist Brian Matthew Jordan returns us to the war itself, bringing readers to the chaos of battle and the trials of military life. Jordan creates an intimate, absorbing chronicle using the perspective of troops from the 107th Ohio, an ethnic German regiment set apart by language and identity.  Please read the book and come prepared to discuss.

 

 

The Battle Above the Clouds

Wednesday, November 17  |  6:30 – 8pm  |  $10 ($15 non-members)  |  Instructor: Dave Powell  |  Register Here by November 16

Mr. Powell will discuss the Battle of Lookout Mountain, fought on November 24, 1963. The battle’s nickname is evocative, and Lookout Mountain is itself a major tourist draw across the Southeast U.S. Many visitors who go to the crest of the mountain don’t realize that they aren’t on the actual battlefield; the fighting took place on the lower slopes, not the peak. The battle is further obscured by the fact that the Union assault forces were commanded by Joseph Hooker, a general who was not on particularly good terms with his commander, Ulysses S. Grant, who later belittled the fighting as mere “poetry.” But Lookout Mountain was a real fight and an amazing feat.
