The Yellowhammer War: A Civil War Symposium

The Yellowhammer War: A Civil War Symposium

Please join us for a free, one-day symposium on Saturday, September 13 at Langdon Hall to mark the Civil War sesquicentennial and learn about Alabama's role in, and experience of, the Civil War and its aftermath.

The symposium features contributors to The Yellowhammer War: The Civil War and Reconstruction in Alabama, edited by Auburn University professor Kenneth W. Now. Published to mark the Civil War sesquicentennial, The Yellowhammer War collects new essays on Alabama’s role in, and experience of, the bloody national conflict and its aftermath. Topics such as the military and political history of Alabama’s Civil War contributions,  race, women, the home front, and Reconstruction will be discussed.

No pre-registration is required, and the event is free and open to the public. A walking tour of Civil War era Auburn with the Auburn University Department of History will conclude the symposium.

The symposium is sponsored by the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities and the Department of History in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn University.
