Civil War Roundtable
November 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
November brings the annual Wiley Lecture, given each year in honor of one of the Roudtable’s founding members, David Wiley, who passed away in 2011.
This month’s topic will be “Comparing the Civil War Presidents: Abraham Lincoln and Jefferson Davis”. Brian Dirck is a Professor of History at Anderson University in Anderson, Indiana. His scholarship has focused on the American Civil War era, in particular, the life and career of Abraham Lincoln. His first book, Lincoln and Davis: Imagining America, 1809-1865, on which this month’s lecture is based, offers a comparative analysis of the two Civil War presidents.
