Every second Wednesday of the month, the Museum of the Confederacy and the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park are partnering to bring the Civil War Sesquicentennial to Appomattox. Each month, a knowledgable speaker will lead a discussion on a topic or event's 150th anniversary. The talks will take place upstairs at Baine's Books and Coffee.
Dr. Emmett Curran, Georgetown University Professor Emeritus of History, gives us fresh information from a keen observer of life in the Confederate Army and significant campaigns of the North-South conflict. The younger brother of Maymont's James H. Dooley, John Edward Dooley left a riveting, highly literate and vivid first-person account of his experiences in the First Virginia Regiment.
