Zoar Free Speaker Series
March 2, 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
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 PowerPoint presentation of the twin battles of The Wilderness and Spotsylvania that took place from May 5-19, 1864. The speaker argues that, despite the fact that the first of the battles was a Confederate victory, these battles constitute the true turning point of the Civil War as they forever extinguished the possibility that the Confederacy could win the war. John C. Fazio has a B.A. and J.D. from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. He has written three books: “Decapitating the Union: Jefferson Davis,” “Judah Benjamin” and “The Plot to Assassinate Lincoln.”
