Stories from the Archives: Civil War Manuscripts

Thursday,  December 9, 3:00 – 4:00 p.m. ET

Presented by Judy Lucey, Senior Archivist

From 1861 to 1865, the American Civil War defined our country and everyone living in America was affected in some way by its events. This webinar will feature items from the time of the Civil War found in the R. Stanton Avery Special Collections and the Wyner Family Jewish Heritage Center at NEHGS, including family correspondence, photos, diaries, and more. These archival collections represent both the Union and Confederacy sides, the concurrent slave trade, contemporary women’s voices, and the following era of Reconstruction. Each object has its unique place in history and family memory; join us to hear the stories behind these historical items.
