High Noon Talk: Lone Star Unionism
April 5, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Texas Civil War history as you've never heard it before.
Held on the first Wednesday of every month, High Noon Talks highlight interesting and often untold topics through this casual lunch-time lecture.
Most histories of Civil War Texas—some starring the fabled Hood’s Brigade, Terry’s Texas Rangers, or one or another military figure—depict the Lone Star State as having joined the Confederacy as a matter of course and as having later emerged from the war relatively unscathed. Yet the book Lone Star Unionism, Dissent, and Resistance: Other Sides of Civil War Texas demonstrates the often neglected stories of Texas Unionists and dissenters which paint a far more complicated picture.
Join the book's editor Jesus F. de la Teja for an overview of the work and discover a missing layer of complexity to the history of Civil War Texas.
