Global Current Events During the Civil War

Presented by Conservator Kate Sullivan

Location: The Explorers Theater

We live in the age of instant communication and are often aware of global events almost as soon as they happen. This constant flow of international information seems normal to us. During the American Civil War, world news traveled much more slowly. It could be days, weeks or even months before Americans were aware of what was going on in other parts of the world. If they heard about things at all. This presentation will cover the international headlines of current events, politics, science, arts and literature during the 1860’s.
