Historian in the Hot Seat: The Civil War and Harold Holzer

Sun, June 16th, 2013 | 12:00 pm

What burning questions do you have about the Civil War? Kids and dads (and moms) join renowned scholar Harold Holzer and ask them all! Mr. Holzer will engage young historians in a thoughtful conversation about a wide range of topic—battles, Abraham Lincoln, slavery, soldiers—whatever you would like to ask him. What did soldiers eat while on the march? How did “Stonewall” Jackson get his nickname? What was “Bloody Kansas”? Did brothers and cousins really fight each other?
