Speaking Tonight in Methuen

Just a quick reminder for my Boston-area friends that tonight I will be speaking at the Nevins Memorial Library as part of their “Methuen Remembers the Civil War” series. My topic is the subject of my new book project on the history of Confederate camp servants and myth of the black Confederate soldier, but I will have copies of my Crater book for sale. Perhaps I will have a chance to talk about it briefly as well.

Come on out.

Searching for Black Confederates: The Civil War’s Most Persistent Myth

“Levin’s study is the first of its kind to blueprint and then debunk the mythology of enslaved African Americans who allegedly served voluntarily in behalf of the Confederacy.”–Journal of Southern History

    I will get to one of your seminars one of these days. Methuen was really a trip from East-Central Mass though. Hope that it went well.

    What time is the seminar? Is it an open lecture? Methuen is a hike from where I live but it sounds like its worth attending.
