Cool History: Summer Lecture Series
The Cool History: Summer Lecture Series brings regional historians with expertise in the Civil War to Columbus, GA, at the National Civil War Naval Museum for a presentation and question-and-answer session with the audience. All lectures in this speaker series are free and open to the public.
The lecturer for this event is Dr. Brian Wills, Director of the Center for the Study of the Civil War Era at Kennesaw State University. As the author of Gone with the Glory: The Civil War in Cinema, Wills will relate what Hollywood has gotten right and wrong about the Civil War and how the movies reflect America’s changing understandings of the Civil War and of the nation.
The Cool History: Summer Lecture Series is sponsored by a grant from Georgia Humanities.
