The Civil War in 1865 and Beyond
Gettysburg National Military Park Mid-Winter Lecture Series 2015
Today's Program: To the Brink of Collapse: The Final Campaign of the Army of Tennessee, with Philip Brown, Guilford Court House NMP
On March 8, 1865, William T. Sherman crossed into North Carolina with an army of approximately sixty thousand men. Opposing Sherman was a small, feeble force of Confederates under Joseph Johnston. Over the next two months these two men and their armies would make North Carolina the scene of chaos and conflict. This program will explore the last days of the Army of Tennessee in North Carolina as the Confederacy collapsed around and within its ranks. Join Philip Brown, Guilford Courthouse National Military Park, in this look at the final days of the war in North Carolina.
This series of free, one-hour programs begins at 1:30 p.m., in Ford Education Center at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. Additional lectures will take place on weekends through March 8 and are free of charge. Full schedule available by calling 717-334-1124 x 8023 or by visiting www.nps.gov/gett
