ZOAR FREE SPEAKER SERIES—CIVIL WAR BATTLES
February 26 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Jon C. Fazio discussed the twin Civil War Battle of The Wilderness and Spotsylvania from 11 am to noon at the Zoar United Church of Christ.
Historic Zoar Village’s FREE Speaker Series makes its 2019 premiere with John C. Fazio presenting “The Turning Point: The Wilderness and Spotsylvania.” This is a presentation of the twin battles of The Wilderness and Spotsylvania which took place May 5-19, 1864. The speaker argues that, despite the fact that the first win was a Confederate victory, these battles constitute the true turning point of the Civil War because they forever extinguished the possibility that the Confederacy could win the war.
This event, which is FREE and open to the public, will be held from 11 am to noon at the Zoar United Church of Christ.
Special Note: The Battle of the Wilderness will be recreated at the Zoar Civil War Reenactment on September 21-22, 2019.
