Michigan in the Civil War-A Great and Bloody Sacrifice
Sloan Museum - Civil War Lecture
Michigan & the Civil War-A Great and Bloody Sacrifice Guest Lecturer: Jack Dempsey Date: February 21, 2013 Location: Sloan Museum Time: 6pm-8pm Fee: $9 adults, $8 seniors, $6 youth age 3-11, Free for APHC With lively narration, telling anecdotes and vivid battlefield accounts, Michigan and the Civil War presents, as never before, the story of Michigan’s heroic role in saving the Union. Beginning with Michigan’s antebellum period and antislavery heritage, the book describes the state’s rapid response to President Lincoln’s call to arms, its involvement in the greatest battles and its most interesting personalities. In the triumphant conclusion, Custer comers Lee at Appomattox, and the Fourth Michigan Cavalry apprehends the fleeing Davis. Based on thorough and new research, this volume is surprising in breadth, at times awe-inspiring and a continual revelation of long-overlooked Civil War contributions of the Great Lakes State. This will be a book signing and presentation. Space is limited. Reserve your seat at 810.237.3409.
