The Virginia Center for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech continues the “New Perspectives on the Civil War Era” speaker series online with "The Families’ Civil War" on Thursday, April 22, 2021.

Enjoy a free lecture and discussion with Dr. Holly Pinheiro, part of the “New Perspectives on the Civil War Era” speaker series. Dr. Pinheiro will discuss his research examining every Philadelphian-born African American man who served in a Pennsylvanian United States Colored Troops regiment. He investigates their families from 1850 to the 1930s to argue that northern freeborn African Americans fought against systematic racial oppression throughout their entire lives.
