  • Overview

    Presented by Michael Barrett, this presentation in the Waterford Historical Museum and Cultural Center's Winter Lecture Series explores Troy’s most vigorous and influential period, the decades leading up to and including the years of the American Civil War. Strong pre-war abolition fervor and the riotous escaped slave incident of 1860 helped to shape the national consciousness. Her bustling industries and prominent military and political personalities did much to further the Federal war effort. Her soldiers bore the burden of participating in every major battle and avenged both the first and the last great casualties of the war. Dinner is available for separate purchase. Reservations highly recommended.
