Join us for this special set of presentations in which a dozen historians discuss their work on various aspects of the Civil War in the West. Each presenter will be limited to five minutes, making for a fast-paced and informative program.
The event is the culmination of a two-day academic workshop for the scholars who are contributing essays to a forthcoming book titled How the West Changed the Civil War. It also includes a sneak preview of the Autry’s upcoming exhibition, Empire and Liberty: The Civil War and the West, opening in April 2015.
Hosted by the Autry in partnership with the Clements Center for Southwest Studies at Southern Methodist University.
