A Closer Look at the Civil War: The Growing Divide
Thursday, March 14, 2013 from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM (EDT)
“A Closer Look at the Civil War” is a three part series that gives attendees a more detailed look at exhibit items and the history they represent. These lectures will be an intimate gathering in a classroom setting, followed by time in the museum. The first session in this series, “The Growing Divide,” will cover the widening rift between the North and South leading up to the Civil War, and how Kentucky was caught in the middle. While Kentucky was a slave state, it was in favor of the Union’s cause. Kentuckians were proud of their tradition of supporting the union. From Henry Clay, the “Great Compromiser,” to John J. Crittenden’s failed attempt to avoid Civil War, Kentucky and Kentuckians were major players on the national stage. In addition to items found in the museum, this session will include items related to Zachery Taylor, Henry Clay, the Know-Nothings and Bloody Monday, and slavery.
This lecture will last approximately 45 minutes, and afterward patrons are invited to tour the “United We Stand, Divided We Fall: The Civil War in Kentucky and the Ohio Valley” exhibit.
Limited Capacity: Reservations are required.
