Book Talk: John Strausbaugh on City of Sedition: The History of New York City During the Civil War

February 9 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

| $10.00

Join us when historian John Strausbaugh discusses his most recent book, which paints a vivid picture of Civil War-era New York City as a place of extremes—where war heroes and draft resisters, abolitionists and slavery proponents, Lincoln supporters and anti-war protesters, all co-existed. He reveals the schismatic role that New York City played in this tumultuous conflict.
