McClung Museum: Civil War Lecture Series: Knoxville’s Civilian War, The Common Man


Category: Free event, History & heritage and Lectures

The ninth annual McClung Museum Civil War Lecture Series will be held once a month on Sundays at 2 pm in the museum auditorium. McClung Museum Civil War Curator, Joan Markel will shed light on the individual lives of Knoxvillians involved in the war.

This month’s lecture is, “Knoxville’s Civilian War, The Common Man.” Young men in this category were generally from working class families; their stories come to light because of well-documented military record, supplemented by diaries, letters and books detailing war-time routines and ordeals. When the fighting ended many former rebels never returned, going west or to the Deep South; many former Union soldiers moved permanently to Knoxville to prosper with the town in the second half of the 19th century.
