Secrets of the Civil War

In our 12-part series, Secrets of the Civil War, we dive into the tumultuous time in our US history full of battles, conflict, death, and destruction. But would it surprise you to know that, while the battles fought during the Civil War absolutely impacted the landscape of our country, they aren’t the full story. Even when divided, the nation grew in unexpected ways, and we’re still feeling reverberations of those advancements today. Join us to hear how the war paved the way for new ideas–some good, like the advent of ambulances, and some… not so helpful, like the Army’s camel brigade. We’ll talk about photography, spies, emancipation, and even a war within the war.
