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 capture of U.S. Brig. Gen. Edwin Stoughton in his bedclothes at Fairfax Courthouse on March 8, 1863 made Col. John Singleton Mosby a wartime celebrity and confirmed his reputation as the Confederacy’s most famous guerrilla.  This program will explore John Mosby's background and training and reveal how a sickly, bookish boy became “John Mosby, Partisan Ranger." Join former Museum Library Manager Ruth Ann Coski for this free lunchtime talk.
