The Heritage Lecture Series: The Untold Civil War
The University of Mary Washington - Dahlgren Campus, in partnership with
the Dahlgren Heritage Foundation, is pleased to announce a new
quarterly historical lecture series. The initial Heritage Lecture will
feature Dr. James "Bud" Robertson discussing "The Untold Civil War".
Date: October 16, 2014
Location: UMW Dahlgren Campus - University Hall (Room 110)
Refreshments will be served at 4:30 pm, and the lecture begins promptly at 5:00 pm.
This lecture is open to the public. Registration is requested as space is limited (registration form below).
One of the most distinguished names in Civil War history, Dr. James
"Bud" Robertson was Executive Director of the U.S. Civil War Centennial
Commission and worked with Presidents Truman, Kennedy, and Johnson in
marking the war's 100th anniversary. An Alumni Distinguished Professor
Emeritus from Virginia Tech, the Danville, Va., native is the author or
editor of more than 20 books; his massive biography of Gen. "Stonewall"
Jackson won eight national awards and was used as the base for the Ted
Turner/Warner Bros. mega-movie, "Gods and Generals". Dr. Robertson was
chief historical consultant for the film. A lecturer of national
acclaim, Dr. Robertson is probably more in demand as a speaker before
Civil War groups than anyone else in the field.
