Hallowed Ground: Putting the Civil War Dead to Rest, MCLS


Monday May 3, 2021
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

750,000 men died in the American Civil War but the tragedy was magnified by disrespectful burial practices where large numbers of bodies were deposited, unidentified, into trenches. Enemy soldiers were frequently not buried at all. This program covers these issues and reports how after the war, Federal and state governments, including large numbers of women, sought to rectify the matter by re-burying them in special cemeteries. This program also covers the issue of statues and monuments. Presented by Civil War expert Martin Mosho, who has studied the Civil War for over 50 years and toured many of the most famous battlefields. He is a member of a prominent Civil War society and a retired instructor of Mercer County Community College.
