Rather than focusing on post-Civil War politics and economics, Creating a Confederate Kentucky: The Lost Cause and Civil War Memory in a Border State author Anne Marshall centers on the activities of Kentuckians and traces the Confederate identity in Kentucky from 1865 to 1925. This book studies the political dialogue that encompassed both  sides of the conflict: the white Unionists and African-Americans who drew on the defeat of the Confederacy, and the Confederate sympathizers. While Kentucky as a whole forgot their Union loyalties, this book looks into the active political and cultural dialogue that shaped this period.  Come and hear from author Anne Marshall about this pivotal period in post-Civil War Kentucky. Anne Marshall is an associate professor of history at Mississippi State University. In addition to Creating a Confederate Kentucky, she has published many books, articles and book reviews and given numerous presentations on her research.  Creating a Confederate Kentucky: The Lost Cause and Civil War Memory in a Border State will be available for purchase at the lecture. Make sure to pick up your copy for the book discussion on September 14! Reservations are suggested.
