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.
One of the bloodiest battles in history, Antietam forever changed the way we look at war due to the photographic images of its dead. This talk looks at the romantic image of war created by artists and compares them with Antietam’s photographic reality. Antietam marks the beginning of our modern day image of war.
Join Museum Supervisor of Visitor Services Bryce VanStavern for this free talk. Bring your lunch to the Museum and commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War.
