Free Tuesday night Lecture - The Confederacy in History, Myth, and Memory

The Confederacy in History, Myth, and Memory

A century and a half after the war, this topic continues to fascinate a global audience. Why? How has the memory developed from the eras of the War, the Lost Cause, Civil Rights, and today?

Waite Rawls, President and CEO of the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, spent 30 years as an investment banker in New York and Chicago before returning to his native Virginia 8 years ago. He is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute and has a JD and MBA from the University of Virginia. He believes that history is relevant in the 21st century, especially its complications and nuances.

    A terrific lecture in so many respects-exceeded my expectations as a long-time history buff. Conversation afterwards over dinner and drinks at "Dillon's"(955 Boylston St.) with Eric and Pat was really great. Thanks, "Guys." Special thanks to Eric for getting the word out about this event on such short notice. Pity we didn't connect with anyone else who signed for this meetup.

    Interesting topic. I'd like to learn more but have a nearby commitment at the same time. Perhaps I could join others for discussion at Dillons around 8:15p?

    Dillons on Boylston St is a short walk for anyone who'd like to get a drink afterwards.
