The Civil War in 1863
Gettysburg National Military Park Mid-Winter Lecture Series 2013
Today's Program: 1863- The Strategic Dilemma, with Bill Hewitt.
Three problems plagued the Confederacy as 1863 opened, and drove its strategic considerations. These were: the continuing limitations of terrain; the growing economic turmoil, and the completely dysfunctional command structure of the Western Department. These three aspects combined to contribute to the army options and inevitably to the downfall of the Confederacy.
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 10 and are free of charge. Full schedule available by calling 717-334-1124 x 8023 or by visiting www.nps.gov/gettMore »
