The Atlanta History Center is pleased to be in partnership with the Lovett School for their four-year lecture series "The Civil War and the Forging of Character," which commemorates the sesquicentennial of the Civil War and the Battle of Atlanta.
This lecture series brings to Atlanta speakers and scholars to engage all of us - students, teachers, parents, alumni, and the community at large - on critical matters of character and integrity as demonstrated during this defining period in our nation's history.
The Atlanta History Center hosts an evening lecture with noted historian David Blight on May 8, 2013. Blight is a professor of American History at Yale University and Director of the Gilder-Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance and Abolition. He is also an award-winning author of serval books, including "American Oracle: The Civil War in the Civil Rights Era," "Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory," and "When This Cruel War is Over."
