The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum will begin its annual winter speaker series with a free presentation of, Loyalty on the Line: Civil War Maryland in American Memory, shedding light on monuments and the American Civil war. The first session will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 3. The series continues on select Wednesdays through March 17.
All sessions will be held virtually.
The February 3 session will discuss the controversy surrounding the monuments and memory of Maryland’s Civil War legacy which is not new. During the American Civil War, Maryland did not join the Confederacy but nonetheless possessed divided loyalties and sentiments. In this session, Snow College Assistant Professor David Graham examines the place of Maryland in Civil War memory, and how that legacy has hinged on interpretations of the state’s loyalty.
This first session will be presented FREE thanks to the generous sponsorship of Ellen & Dick Bodorff, Sharon & Duane Ekedahl, Liz & Howard Freedlander, Elizabeth Moose, and Beverly & Richard Tilghman.
