The Civil War in Newspapers

March 18,
2 pm
Dr. Bob Tomlinson will talk about how the Civil War was seen in the newspapers, particularly The Richmond Whig.

Newspapers were the primary source of news--after firsthand accounts--and were passed along and traded, even between Confederate and Union soldiers!

Stop by the Lebanon Library Sunday afternoon and find out what news was fit to print.
