Civil War 150: Texas and Texans in the Civil War
Select Sundays in February, March, and April, 2:30 p.m.
Texas Spirit Theater
FREE program

This year, the Museum will commemorate the sesquicentennial of the Civil War with a multi-part lecture series, Civil War 150: Texas and Texans in the Civil War, that will bring together leading Civil War scholars from across the state to discuss the variety of roles Texas played throughout the war, as well as examine the importance of Texas and Texans in this defining moment in American history from the perspective of women, African Americans, Tejanos, and American Indians.

Each lecture will be followed by a moderated discussion that places Texas’s participation in the war efforts both at home and on the battlefield into the larger context of one of the most pivotal events in the country’s history.
