Mansion to host lecture by renowned historian

The Old Governor’s Mansion is culminating the “Burning Misconception” lecture series with a discussion from Dr. David Goldfield entitled “In Summation, Making Sense of the Civil War.” The lecture is Monday, May 4 at 6 p.m. at the Old Governor’s Mansion.

Goldfield is a renowned historian and currently serves as the Robert Lee Bailey Professor of History at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. He has published 16 books on Southern and American history such as “Cotton Field and Skyscrapers” and “America Aflame.” In this final lecture, Goldfield will share the infamous history behind the tumultuous times of the Civil War.  

"I found that, despite the tons of books on the Civil War there are still many misconceptions about it," said Goldfield. "Involving campus and community offers an opportunity to broaden the audience and address the major issues concerning the war." 

The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Old Governor's Mansion at 478-445-4545.
