The Civil War in 1865 and Beyond
Gettysburg National Military Park Mid-Winter Lecture Series 2015

Today's Program: The Civil War - A Waypoint in Military History, with William Hewitt

The Civil War provided a transformational platform for innovations in equipment, leadership, procedures and soldiering that had far-reaching impacts on the journey of the American military. While in some instances these changes were immediate, others came with time. All had their roots in the four year conflict. Join Bill Hewitt, GNMP, for this one hour lecture to explore the broad and specific impacts the Civil War had on the American Military.

This series of free, one-hour programs begins at 1:30 p.m. in one of the theaters 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
