Civil War 150 Online Discussion Blog
The W-TCPL has received a grant to provide Civil War programming during the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. This was made possible through funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities in partnership with The Library of America and The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History. We'll be planning programs at the Main Library over the coming months.
The grant includes access to select online Readers of original source material from an anthology series entitled The Civil War: Told by Those Who Lived It, published by The Library of America. We have created a blog for interested participants to read the materials and then join in an online discussion led by Jeff Eling, Howland Branch Manager.
