Thu, October 4th, 2012 | 7:30 pm

EVENT DETAILS

The naval side of the Civil War was far more than a picturesque battle over vast oceans. Rather, it was a gritty fight involving deadly new technologies, focused primarily on the nation’s rivers — particularly the “Father of Waters,” as Lincoln called the crucial Mississippi. Now two of the nation’s leading military historians — each with a new book on the Civil War navies — re-examine the “inland” war for the divided nation’s waters.
