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.

The cello rock powerhouse featuring three cellists and a drummer, bring their original music to Carnegie Carnegie Hall. Their music combines the symphonic sounds of the cello with driving rock beats. Cellists Simon Cummings, Ben Muñoz and Nicole Myers along with drummer David Throckmorton unleash vitality and rhythmic drive in their music and dare to venture past classical expectations.
Connecting with artists across genres, Cello Fury has collaborated with dance companies, theater organizations, opera and orchestras as well as with rock bands and singer-songwriters.
If you heard their performance at the open house in 2015, you will want to come back for the full concert in February. We welcome Cello Fury back to Carnegie Carnegie Hall on Saturday, January 28 at 7:30 PM.
Advance $18, $25 at the door, Students with ID $10. Click here to purchase tickets.
