Travel Class “The Civil War Through Different Lenses (for 2015)”
Introduction—Over the years, our Senior Center Civil Warriors have walked most every Civil War battlefield in the Old Dominion. This class, however, explores some of the innumerable other non-battle-related topics that make our country’s fratricidal war so interesting! Join us to discover: the amazing images of Civil War naval personnel; the talented engineers who mapped the war; the strange fate of Jefferson’s Monticello during the conflict; the role plantation slavery played in the massive upheaval; how Grant & Lee terminated the bloody war in Virginia; and the meaning of the Sesquicentennial—the 150th Anniversary—to the National Park Service. How did it differ from the Centennial? 
Our Lecturers—National Park Service Historian Beth Parnicza, veteran NPS Historian Ron Wilson (who worked at Appomattox 25 years), Military Historian & Tour Guide Dale Floyd, Civil War Historian & New York Times Contributing Author Ron Coddington, Slavery Historian Leni Sorensen, and Civil War Historian Rick Britton.
