March 2010 Civil War Symposium
From: Antoinette van Zelm
Date: Wed, Jan 6, 2010 10:43 am
Dear Colleagues:

In partnership with the Stones River National Battlefield, the Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area is coordinating its sixth Legacy of Stones River Symposium, to be held on March 20, 2010. We have a terrific program planned--please see the information below. We would greatly appreciate it if you could help us promote this event in your upcoming newsletters or online calendars of events. Thank you!

Antoinette van Zelm
Tennessee Civil War National Heritage Area

“The Legacy of Stones River: Why They Fought” symposium will take place on Saturday, March 20, 2010, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in Murfreesboro, TN. The program features talks by Keith Bohannon, Sam Davis Elliott, and Kenneth Noe at the Rutherford County Courthouse in the morning, followed by park ranger-led programs at Stones River National Battlefield in the afternoon. Bohannon of the University of West Georgia has written extensively about the war, including essays on John Bell Hood and the Battle of Chickamauga. Elliott, an attorney in Chattanooga, is the author of the forthcoming Isham G. Harris of Tennessee: Confederate Governor and United States Senator. Noe is the Draughon Professor of Southern History at Auburn University. His Reluctant Rebels: The Confederates Who Joined the Army After 1861 will be published this year. The $10 registration fee includes continental breakfast. Call 615-893-9501 or visit www.nps.gov/stri or www.tncivilwar.org to download a registration brochure.

I have simply got to pay more attention. I should have posted the Winter Lecture Series at Gettysburg here earlier!

You can check them out at the park website: www.nps.gov/gett

My apologies!

Confederate Gold...Brad Meltzer's Decoded

http://www.history.com/shows/brad-meltzers-decoded

Thursday, December 30, 2010 10PM EST / 9PM CST

I live in Athens, Georgia. Not far from me is Washington, Georgia, Wilkes County. And yes, this is the name Margaret Mitchell used for the Wilkes's in her famous book, "Gone with the Wind".

Washington is still a historical town to this day. There is a tremendous impact visiting there. It takes you back in time to the era of the Civil War. Families in this region have been there long before the Civil War was even thought of.

It is here, that is marked the escape route of then President Jefferson Davis and his fleeing entourage, from Union troops. It is said that with them, was a large portion of the Confederate Treasury. Gold bars and coin that was backing up the war, and the potential emergence of a return.

It is believed that, in this immediate area, Davis ordered the gold to be buried and hidden, due to the fact that he was within site of being captured. The cargo load at hand needed to be significantly lightened.

To this day, there are still people looking for that gold that has never been found.

The Missouri Civil War Sesquicentennial has put together a great site that has listings of major (and some not so major) events relating to the Civil War in Missouri on their site.

Retreat to Williamsport schedule.

Retreat through Williamsport: Civil War Weekend
July 8, 9 & 10, 2011 - Springfield Farm & C&O Canal Cushwa Basin & Riverbottom Park



Following the Battle of Gettysburg, July 1863, the Confederate Army retreated through Williamsport, Maryland. The Retreat through Williamsport: Civil War Weekend interprets the events of the Confederate and Union Armies in and around Williamsport from July 5-14, 1863.



The Retreat through Williamsport: Civil War Weekend will enhance your Sesquicentennial experience – walk the fields of Springfield Farm where soldiers camped, fought and died, feel the urgency of Imboden’s challenge to get the 17 miles of wounded home to Virginia, be an active witness of the Wagoner’s Fight and the Battle of Falling Waters, experience General Lee’s grief at the loss of General Pettigrew, whom he called his right arm in battle, and his once proud army retreating and longing for home. The soldiers marched, dazed through torrents of rain, slipping and sliding in mud up to their knees to get to Falling Waters and the pontoon bridge that will lead to home, home – almost a lost memory – Virginia, sweet Virginia!
