Dr. Peyton to Speak on Civil War in Charleston


Dr. Billy Joe Peyton, WVSU associate professor and chair of the History Department, will conduct a short lecture at the Kanawha Country Public Library about the Civil War in Charleston and historic Civil War resources.  The event will be on February 22 from 12:10 to 12:50 p.m. in the Ray Room on the third floor of the Library. Participants are invited to bring their lunch to this "Feed Your Head" lunchtime program.

Dr. Peyton’s Fall 2011 Introduction to Historic Preservation class prepared an exhibit titled "Men to Arms! The Civil War in Charleston" featuring key Civil War events in the city, including the 1862 Battle of Charleston and the construction of Fort Scammon in 1863 by Ohio troops that included future Presidents Rutherford Hayes and James Garfield. The exhibit will be on display until March 31.
