Rethinking the Regimental History

Monday, January 24  |  6:30 pm  |  Instructor:  Dr. Brian Jordan  |  Virtual Workshop via Zoom  |  $10 ($20 non-members)  |  Register here by January 23

Historian Brian Matthew Jordan demonstrates how regimental histories can permit scholars to tell a more capacious, textured, and inclusive story of the war: one that accounts for – and makes sense of – the war’s many extremes.



Media Club:  The Unvanquished (1938) by William Faulkner

Tuesday, February 22  |  6:30 pm  |  Instructor:  Doug Dammann  |  In-person  |  $5 ($10 non-members)  |  Register here by February 21

The Unvanquished tells the story of the Sartoris family, who first appeared in the novel Sartoris (or Flags in the Dust). This novel takes place before that story and is set during the Civil War. The book is told in seven episodes – sometimes immediately following one another, other times separated by months or years – spanning 1862 to 1873.
