Historian in the Hot Seat: The Civil War and Harold Holzer - New-York Historical Society
Add to Calendar 16-06-2013 16-06-2013 15 Historian in the Hot Seat: The Civil War and Harold Holzer Special Father's Day family program for ALL AGES. Free with admission. What burning questions do you have about the Civil War? Kids and dads (and moms) join renowned scholar Harold Holzer and ask them all! Mr. Holzer will engage young historians in a thoughtful conversation about a wide range of topic – battles, Abraham Lincoln, slavery, soldiers – whatever you would like to ask him. What did soldiers eat while on the march? How did "Stonewall" Jackson get his nickname? What was "Bloody Kansas"? Did brothers and cousins really fight each other? Stick around and play our Choose Your Own Adventure game as a Civil War soldier, and do our Civil War scavenger hunt, taking you throughout the New-York Historical Society to see real Civil War related objects. Harold Holzer will be signing copies of his new book The Civil War in 50 Objects and his recent young reader's companion book for Steven Spielberg's Lincoln movie Lincoln: How Abraham Lincoln Ended Slavery in America. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=138979 New-York Historical Society true DD/MM/YYYY
