Next Meeting - October 14, 2015
The Ongoing Civil War
7:30PM – Eisenhart Auditorium, Rochester Museum and Science Center
Free and open to the public
The Civil War, which began in 1861, involved virtually all of America’s population. Towns and counties formed their own regiments such as Monroe County’s own 140th New York regiment. The conflict impacted not only the many men and as many as 200 women who saw combat, but also led to various forms of depravation for its civilian population.
It would seem that the loss of some 700,000 souls plus the destruction done to the material wealth of the nation would have resolved the issues that led to war. That has hardly been case, which may be a large part of the fascination held by many for the Civil War.
Immediately after the war ended, memories and perceptions came to the fore throughout the United States. In the South was a need to reconcile their loss with the sectional pride. The North began to memorialize the conflict as the victors.
This presentation will exhibit some of the ways that post bedlam attitudes emerged. Battlefield monuments, mostly from Gettysburg, forms of art, ways of remembering the war, and associations such as the Daughters of the Confederacy will be viewed and discussed.
Maybe we will be able to predict when the Civil War might end! Champion: Nancy Donny
