Sunday, February 25: The 2018 Long Branch Speaker Series “Not with Fire & Sword”

Jonathan Noyalas, the Director of Shenandoah University’s McCormick Civil War Institute, will discuss healing the War’s wounds in the Valley. As Noyalas writes in Civil War Legacy in the Shenandoah: Remembrance, Reunion, and Reconciliation: “Among all of the tasks former Confederates had to deal with in the Civil War’s aftermath, ‘learning to forget the bitterness’ proved perhaps the most difficult.” This is an important subject that echoes into our own time, and Professor Noyalas is a much-praised lecturer. All talks begin at 6 pm and last approximately one hour, including time for questions and comments from the audience. Attendees will have a chance to socialize beforehand over drinks and light hors d’oeuvres, beginning at 5:30. Ticket prices: $25 for individual speakers, $80 for the entire series. Seating is limited, and priority will go to series-ticket holders. To reserve tickets, please contact Long Branch at 540.837.1856.
