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.

The death of Lt. Gen. Thomas J. “Stonewall” Jackson on May 10, 1863 was, according to contemporaries and historians alike, the most irreplaceable casualty the Confederacy suffered during the entire war. Held on the 150th anniversary of the day that he died, this program will highlight objects, photographs, and documents in the Museum’s collections to recount the wounding, death, funeral, and mourning of Stonewall Jackson.

Join Museum Historian John Coski for this lunchtime talk.
