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.

On November 5, 1862, Abraham Lincoln finally removed George B. McClellan from command of the Army of the Potomac. This was neither the first nor the last time that Lincoln would change commanders.
