The Civil War in 1864
Gettysburg National Military Park Mid-Winter Lecture Series 2014
Today's Program: "We have preaching in camp everyday," The Southern Religious Revivals of the Winter of 1863-64, with Troy Harman.
Did the defeat at Gettysburg with its heavy casualties spur the great revivals that swept through the Southern armies during the winter of 1863 and 1864? The revivals changed the Confederate soldier's tone, tenor and perception of the war. The intensity of those outdoor revivals were, and still are unrivaled as a phenomenon within an American army during a war. What prompted these religious spectacles and what did they look like? How did these events shape the South going forward?
This series of free, one-hour programs begins at 1:30 p.m., in one of the two theaters at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. Additional lectures will take place on weekends through March 9 and are free of charge. Full schedule available by calling 717-334-1124 x 8023 or by visiting www.nps.gov/gettMore »
