ACFL&MH’s Second Civil War Symposium Takes Place March 18

2015 was the 150th anniversary of both the end of the Civil War and Abraham Lincoln’s death. Espy Post Curator Diane Klinefelter knew she had to pull out all the stops for such a milestone year, and developed the ACFL&MH’s first Civil War Symposium: Road to Appomattox. It wasn’t easy, but the 2015 Symposium was an unequivocal success. Asked by Road to Appomattox attendees if there would be a symposium the following year, Klinefelter demurred, but promised to consider a biennial event. The ACFL&MH’s second Civil War Symposium takes place Saturday, March 18. Rather than focus on a single overarching theme as the 2105 program did, Klinefelter has put together an eclectic roster of speakers, hoping to draw a diverse audience. The day’s programming is geared towards educators, historians and Civil War enthusiasts. “We will be going into more depth than we do with our annual April Civil War Living History Day,” said Klinefelter, “but we don’t want to scare anyone off. If you think you’re interested, give it a try.” Symposium speakers are: Julie Mujic, Ph.D., who holds a teaching position at Capital University in Columbus, Ohio. Daniel Welch serves as a seasonal ranger at Gettysburg National Military Park, previously served as Education Programs Coordinator for the Gettysburg Foundation, and now teaches in a public school in northeast Ohio. Kristopher D. White is Co-Founder and Chief Historian for “Emerging Civil War,” and a very popular returning speaker at the ACFL&MH. Eric J. Wittenberg is a lawyer and also a Civil War historian, blogger, speaker and battlefield preservationist, who has somehow found time to write nearly 20 books.

Presented by ACFL&MH resident theater company, Stage 62, Assassins lays bare the lives of nine individuals who assassinated or tried to assassinate the President of the United States, in a one-act historical “revusical” that explores the dark side of the American experience. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald, writers Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman bend the rules of time and space, taking us on a nightmarish roller coaster ride in which assassins and would-be assassins from different historical periods meet, interact and inspire each other to harrowing acts in the name of the American Dream.

Music and Lyrics by Stephen Sondheim ; Book by John Weidman

Presented through special arrangement with Music theatre International (MTI).

Performance Schedule:

Thu. to Sat. May 12-14 and 19-21 at 8 pm
