North Carolina’s Piedmont during the Civil War
Monday, January 27 | 7-9 p.m.
Tuition: $30; GAA members pay $25
For those living in the rolling hills of the Piedmont the American Civil War seemed distant. Still, this area gave men, materiel and moral support to the Confederacy. That said, there were, also, those who questioned the sacrifices required for independence. This class will explore North Carolina’s Piedmont as it served as a Confederate “depot,” hosted great events like Bentonville and served as a stage for political unrest. Join us for a Civil War study of the region we call home.
Lecturer: Fred W. Kiger ’74 (’77 MAT) leads our Civil War battlefield study programs and teaches several GAA courses each semester. He is the creator of the field guide The Civil War: A History of the War Between the States (Workman) and has two degrees from UNC, a bachelor’s in history and a master of arts in teaching with an emphasis in history.
