In order to describe 19th century mourning traditions, this presentation will first outline the conditions of the time, including disease, lack of sterile practices, diets that lacked essential vitamins and nutrients, and medical treatments barely a step above witchcraft – all of which made death a very common occurrence. As the Civil War dragged on into it's 4th year, the carnage of battle added another cause for mourning, rituals became more clearly defined and adhered to as much as finances and circumstances allowed.  Presenters Judi Hendrickson and Jeanne Finstein will describe these and many other traditions of the time, some of which are still observed. Their talk will be illustrated with pictures, showing such things as mourning garb and vintage photographs. Registration not required. Free and open to the public. 2nd Saturday Lecture Series made possible by the Massey Charitable Trust.

On Christmas Day 1860, the Daily Pittsburgh Gazette announced that more than one hundred cannons from the nearby U.S. Arsenal were to be shipped south. Fiercely loyal to the Union, Pittsburghers halted the movement of the artillery, which would have been seized by secessionist sympathizers. Over the course of the Civil War, Pittsburgh and Allegheny County provided both troops and equipment--including heavy artillery--in disproportionately large numbers. While no major battles were fought nearby, local soldiers and civilians sacrificed and suffered--the Allegheny Arsenal explosion in September 1862 left seventy-eight dead and was the worst civilian disaster of the war. Thousands dug trenches and joined militia companies to defend their city as others worked to support the wounded soldiers. Reporter Len Barcousky draws on the next-day reporting of the predecessors of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette to craft a gripping and insightful view of the Steel City during the Civil War.. Registration not required. Free and open to the public. 2nd Saturday Lecture Series made possible by the Massey Charitable Trust.
