Members of the Foothills Civil War Roundtable, the Spartanburg County Historical Association, and other historical organizations are cordially invited to special events commemorating the Sesquicentennial of the war at Wofford this month.

On Tuesday, April 12 at 7 p.m. in Leonard Auditorium in Main Building, an advanced history class on the war taught by Dr. Tracy Revels will present period music and readings from participants – not generals and politicians but letters and journals from soldiers at the front and loved ones at home.

On Monday, April 25 at 4 p.m, Wofford will welcome a guest lecturer, Dr. Joan Waugh of UCLA (a colleague and friend of Dr. Dan Howe, our Lewis P. Jones Visiting Professor of History). She will speak in McMillan Theater in the Campus Life Building on the topic “U.S. Grant: American Hero, American Myth.” As she has done effectively in her most recent book, she will argue that historians have underestimated Grant, both as a general and as a President.

Admission is free to both events.
