Second Saturday Civil War Series

The Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall will inaugurate a new program, Second Saturday Civil War Series, on Sept. 13. Historian Kristopher White’s talk “Defeat from the Jaws of Victory” will focus on The Battle of Antietam, the single bloodiest day of combat in the devastating years of the Civil War.

White, a local historian and author, will focus on the far-reaching impact of Antietam and the Maryland campaign on and off the battlefield, while exploring the political and social changes brought forth by one of the Civil War’s most famous battles.

“Defeat from the Jaws of History” will take place at 1 p.m. in the ACFL&MH’s Reception Hall, adjacent to the Espy Post. White, whose talk will be followed by a Q&A period, will also autograph copies of his books. Light refreshments will be served. The Espy Post and the Second Saturday Civil War Series are free and open to the public.
