Lakeside Welcomes Civil War Enthusiasts

Week 9 of the Chautauqua Lecture Series will feature Lakeside's 12th consecutive Civil War Week, held from Monday, Aug. 17-Friday, Aug. 21.

Lecturers include Dana Shoaf, Editor of the Civil WarTimes, and Dennis Frye, Chief Historian at Harpers Ferry National Park.

Additional lectures will feature speakers from Ohio, presenting various topics related to the Civil War, including President Abraham Lincoln's assassination, religion and the Civil War, Antietam, John Wilkes Booth, perspectives on the home front and war front and Rutherford B. Hayes.

An off-site program, titled "Freedom's Friends: Underground Railroad & Abolitionist History Walk," will be led by representatives of the Oberlin Heritage Center on Friday, Aug. 21 in Oberlin, Ohio.

As 2015 marks the end of the commemoration of the Civil War Sesquicentennial, it also brings Lakeside's Annual Civil War Week held during mid-August to its conclusion.

Beginning in 2016, a new theme will be determined for education programming during this time.

Lectures on the Civil War will continue as a part of Lakeside's focus on American history, just not specifically in the mid-August timeslot.

Please view Lakeside's Calendar of Events brochure in January 2016 for a list of education themes and dates.
