2nd Saturday Civil War Series

Diane Klinefelter Woman's Hour

Since 2014 the Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall, and the Captain Thomas Espy Post, have brought more than fifty Civil War historians here to Carnegie to speak in the Lincoln Gallery as part of our 2nd Saturday Civil War Lecture Series. These lectures are free and open to the public, and are held on the second Saturday of each month, from January – May and September – November. We invite our community, our patrons, and all Civil War enthusiasts from the greater Pittsburgh area to attend these events. .

The 2nd Saturday Lecture Series is made possible by the Massey Charitable Trust.

For more information please contact Espy Post Curator and Social Historian, Jon-Erik Gilot, at gilotj@einetwork.net.

Past Events…

In the spring of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to pivot our 2nd Saturday Civil War Lecture Series to a digital platform. We are grateful to all of our speakers who worked with us to present and record their material online for a wider audience to enjoy.
