7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

This program provides a comprehensive, one hour review of the heroic and awesome accomplishments made by women, both North and South.

This program reveals the enormity of their contributions and sacrifices.

Civil War expert Martin Mosho, who has studied the Civil War for over 50 years and toured many of the most famous battlefields. He is a member of a prominent Civil War society and a retired instructor of Mercer County Community College.

Rebel (2018) -- This is a thrilling PBS documentary about Loreta Janeta Velazquez, an educated Cuban born teenager, who at the outset of the American Civil War fought as an officer in the battle of First Bull Run, was wounded at Shiloh, and served as a secret agent for the Confederacy. By 1863, Velazquez was spying for the Union. She chafed against the gender and race restrictions of her time, and her 1876 memoir, ​A Woman in Battle​, caused a sensation.

The Irish in the Civil War
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The American Civil War is Ireland's forgotten conflict. In 1860, about 1.5 million Irish were living in the United States. During the American Civil War, some 150,000 Irish men fought in the Union Army and about 20,000 joined and fought with the Confederacy. Although there is no exact figure for the Irish fatalities, it is presumed to be in the thousands. Sadly, the contributions and experiences of the great number of Irish soldiers remain relatively unknown. Join historical reenactor and lecturer Michael Jesberger for a presentation on these "Sons of Erin" who played a major role in the American Civil War.
