At the end of the Civil War, about 10,000 former Confederate soldiers and their families immigrated to Brazil because they could not live in a defeated country. Hear Dr. Casey Clabough, author and English professor at Lynchburg College discuss this fascinating group of people whose descendants still live in Brazil today.  Cost: Free for members, $5 for non-members. Register online here, or you can pay at the door. 

This event was rescheduled from February 13th.
