Throughout the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War, the Museum of the Confederacy-Richmond will be hosting a monthly series of talks devoted to a topic or event's 150th anniversary. These talks, normally scheduled for the third Friday of the month, are free for members and Richmond area residents, and are included with Museum admission for all others.

From the papers found upon the body of Ulric Dahlgren to the disappearance of his corpse, the story of Dahlgren’s thwarted raid bears witness to the fact that truth is indeed stranger than fiction.  Join Manager of Education and Programs Kelly Hancock for this tale of bizarre happenings.
