Lecture on Civil War Memory and Memoir

Francis Moore, ca. 1910
National City Public Library
I'll be giving a lecture next Wednesday, April 20, 2011 at San Diego State University on the creation of Civil War memory. The lecture is part of a series to accompany the Civil War Sesquicentennial Exhibit at the SDSU library, for which I served as guest curator.

The lecture is entitled "Neither Historian Nor Novelist: Captain Francis Moore and the Making of Civil War Memory" and previews my forthcoming edited publication of Moore's Civil War memoir (Northern Illinois University Press, Fall 2011). The lecture will be at SDSU on April 20 @ 7:30pm in LL430 (Malcolm Love Library).
