Get Directions

Join us for the last lecture in our 8th annual Civil War Lecture series, "Soldiers and Civilians, History as Documented by the Social Life of an Occupied City."

Given by Civil War Curator Joan Markel, the lecture will be held at 2 p.m. one Sunday each month, January–April 2018 in the McClung Museum Auditorium. The lectures are free and open to the public.

Knoxville was not just a military post; throughout the war it was the center of social life in East Tennessee. Military personnel and civilians interacted to a significant extent and surviving stories are of lasting interest. Recent Civil War programming at Blount Mansion will be highlighted by executive director, David E. Hearnes.
