Just a reminder for this fine program this coming Thursday:
Our good friends at Austin Peay are offering another fine Civil War lecture on Thursday, March 24, 2011 and it is free to the public. The event will be held in the Gentry Auditorium at 5 PM. The featured speaker is Caroline Janney, history professor at Purdue University in Lafayette, Indiana, and her program will be – “Clasping Hands Over the Bloody Chasm: Civil War Veterans’ Reunions and the Path to Reconciliation.” This program and speaker come highly praised by the Indianapolis Civil War Roundtable, among others.
To find the Gentry Auditorium, continue south past the mall on Wilma Rudolph Blvd/Highway 79, into Clarksville. As the road turns right towards downtown (the name changes to College Street), the Austin Peay campus will appear on the right. At Ford Street turn right. The Hemlock Semiconductor Building is on this corner. Turn left on Marion Street and park in the large lot on the right across from the Kimbrough building that houses the Gentry Auditorium. You will see the football stadium to the west of the lot. Please support this fine program and don’t forget – it is free!
Seating is limited so get there early if possible!
