The Road to Appomattox: Union Soldiers and Trench Warfare, 1864-65 @ Burr and Burton Academy, Hunter Seminar Room

Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning (GMALL) welcomes Norwich University Professor Steven E. Sodergren to talk about the final year of the Civil War. This talk will examine the changing face of battle during the latter half of the Civil War as trench warfare and battles of attrition began to dominate the American battlefields. Relying primarily on soldier letters and diaries from the war, Sodergren will discuss the issue of soldier morale, while demonstrating how Union soldiers adapted to the changing battlefield and went on to achieve victory over the Confederacy. Registration is $15 in advance or $20 at the door. For more information or to register, please call our office at 802-867-0111 or visit www.greenmtnacademy.org.
