The 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Ball's Bluff
A free presentation and roundtable discussion
Saturday, October 22, 2011 from 9:00 am to 12 noon
This historic Civil War event has aptly been called a small battle that cast a long shadow. Fought on the Potomac above Washington, D.C., it was perhaps the most important engagement of the Civil War in proportion to the number of troops engaged. The battle's outcome, a bitter defeat to President Lincoln, would have political repercussions - particularly about infighting and the Constitutional separation of powers - for years to come. Among the thousands killed was President Lincoln's best friend, Edward Dickinson Baker.
The free seminar will be led by Professor Michael B. Chesson the Founding Professor and Dean at the American College of History and Legal Studies, and former Professor of History at the University of Massachusetts/Boston. Professor Chesson is the author of four books about the Civil War, and was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in history.
