Reading Your Way Through the Civil War, Part One: “America’s War” by Edward L. Ayers

Join us at the Myerberg Senior Center for the first of two Civil War related book discussions. This discussion will use Ayers’ anthology, America’s War: Talking About the Civil War and Emancipation on their 150th Anniversaries, to explore some of the key themes relating to the Civil War, including the debates over slavery, succession, emancipation and immigrant rights.

Register for this talk today, so you can have a good read ready for the cold winter months. Copies of the book are available and can be borrowed at no cost from the Museum. Register now with Trillion Attwood tattwood@jewishmuseummd.org or 410-732-6400 ext.215.

Conversation facilitator, John H. Matsui graduated from Princeton University. His current research focuses on conflicting political ideologies in Civil War America and their effect on Union military occupation policies in Virginia. His current post as Assistant Professor of History at the Virginia Military Institute (near the tombs of Robert E. Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson) is most ideal.

This is a Let’s Talk About It: Making Sense of the American Civil War partner program! Making Sense of the American Civil War, a reading and discussion series, is a project of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association. Additional support has been provided by the Maryland Humanities Council.
