Harold Holzer - The Civil War in 50 Objects

Sunday, June 30, 5:00 pm

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg—along with the conflict it was part of—take a tour of the New York Historical Society’s extensive collection of Civil War artifacts. Holzer, a Lincoln authority who has written or edited some forty books on the period, is an expert guide to relics ranging from a packed footlocker to a Confederate flag, daguerreotypes of anonymous soldiers to leaves from Lincoln’s bier, pages of the Emancipation Proclamation to a diary—and a pencil—once used by a private.
