We had a really good turn-out for today’s Civil War Sesquicentennial lecture on “An Introduction to Online Civil War Resources at the Archives.” A little over thirty people showed up to listen to me try to pack an overview of four of our resources into an hour-long talk – so thank you to all of you who came to Raleigh today for that.
I promised to give a link to today’s lecture handout (PDF) on the blog today – it includes a list of some of the websites I talked about and a few important aspects about them. As I mentioned on the last blog post about this lecture series, the next talk will be on November 14, 2011 and will be given by Debbi Blake on “Rose O’Neal Greenhow, Confederate Spy,” so please put that on your calendars. During her introduction to today’s lecture, Debbi also gave a tentative calendar for our 2012 lectures:
- February: Capture of the coast – Chris Meekins
- May: Soldiers’ Graves and Cemeteries – Mary Barnes
- August: Death Study – Josh Howard
- November: Conscription – Bill Brown
As always, check this blog periodically since I will post updates here as I hear about them.
