Second Saturday Series

Civil War Weapon Technology

September 14, 10:30 Historical Society

Dr. Lawrence E Keener-Farley presents what was cutting edge technology employed alongside traditional equipment and methods of fighting, which changed the very nature of warfare, making the Civil War what many historians consider the first “modern” war. This lecture will also cover the use of flags on the battlefield and the little-known role of women and children in manufacturing ammunition,  hundreds  of whom died in accidents doing that dangerous work. Original Civil War weapons from Dr Keener-Farley’s collection will be on display.
