No Categories Designated Quiet Time

We know how hard it can be to enjoy some peace and quiet in our small library. Consequently, twice a week we have Designated Quiet Time. During these blocks of time we do not schedule any events in the hopes of keeping the noise levels in the library down.

 

Contested Memories of the Civil War

Take a look at the four main traditions by which members of the Civil War generation remembered and commemorated the war, and the ways in which those traditions still influence the way it is remembered today.

About the presenter:

David Schieffler

A born and bred Delta Arkansan, David earned a B.A. from the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee, in 2003.  In 2005, he completed his M.A. at the University of Arkansas and went on to teach high school history in West Fork, Arkansas, for six years.  In 2011 he hung up his secondary shoes and entered the Ph.D. program at the University of Arkansas, which he completed in 2017.  He specializes in nineteenth-century American history (especially the Civil War Era), has articles forthcoming in The History Teacher and the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies’ Essential Civil War Curriculum, and is currently at work on a book manuscript based on his dissertation, “Civil War in the Delta:  Environment, Race, and the 1863 Helena Campaign.”  When he’s not investigating the natural environment’s pivotal role in the Helena Campaign, David has been known to do a little fishing (of the fly variety), including chasing Ozark smallmouth for miles on end.
