On Saturday, April 18, Monocacy National Battlefield will present two new programs exploring pivotal events surrounding the end of the Civil War and the Assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in 1865. At 11:00 a.m., Dr. Claudia Floyd will present Maryland Connections to Lincoln's Assassination, a program focused on Marylanders who planned, aided, and abetted Lincoln's assassination and how ordinary citizens responded to the assassination.
Park Ranger Brett Spaulding will present the second program, Appomattox and Beyond at 1:30 p.m. This program will focus on the last days of the Confederacy; from General Lee's surrender to United States President Andrew Johnson formally ending the war. Parking for the lectures will be behind the red barn at 4460 Baker Valley Road. The programs will take place at the Thomas House where seating is limited.
