The Civil War in Cinema: From Birth of a Nation to Ken Burns
Monday, September 25, 5:30pm

Neill Public Library welcomes film historian Lance Rhoades as we discuss the history of the Civil War on the silver screen!

The American Civil War has been a perennially popular subject in cinema. The war had been over for less than fifty years when movies began to reach the public on a large scale; some veterans were still alive to see their likenesses captured in celluloid. Over one hundred years later, this near-constant obsession with the Civil War not only reflects the nation’s ongoing attempt to understand a most traumatic period, it also illuminates changing attitudes about national identity and character. Join in a conversation about the cinema the war has inspired, and how it reflects changes in our nation.

This free event takes place Monday, September 25, at 5:30pm in the Neill Public Library Hecht Room.

The event is free to the public and requires no registration, but please note seating is limited. Light refreshments will be served.
