Fireside Stories:
Refugees in the Civil War

From 1861 to 1865 American armies
swept across the landscape, stealing food
from American farmers and fighting for
American cities. These armies came in
contact with countless civilians, many of
whom fled their homes to get away from
the war.

Join local historian Paige Gibbons about
this interesting, but seldom covered, topic
of the American Civil War.

The Deadliest Enemy:
Disease in the Civil War

During the quiet winter of 1861-62, men
were still dying long after the First Battle of
Manassas. Disease killed more Civil War
soldiers than combat and both armies were
especially hit hard during the first year
of the war.

This special program will examine

what diseases swept through Civil War

regiments, the causes, and the treatments.
