Thursday, Feb. 27
The Now Near Prospect of Civil Fratricidal War: Winchester on the Eve of Civil War begins at 7 p.m. in Halpin-Harrison Hall, Stimpson Auditorium. While Winchester’s Civil War story is well known, few have examined Winchester’s experiences on the eve of our American Iliad. This presentation will cover the wide-ranging reactions of Winchester’s population to the events of John Brown’s raid, the varied attitudes toward secession in this community, and what ultimately prompted loyalties to shift from pro-Union to ardently pro-Confederate in the spring of 1861. In addition to teaching at Shenandoah University, Noyalas has served as a historian for a variety of public history projects with such organization as the National Park Service, Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation, Civil War Trust and National Geographic.
