Symposium Takeaway: Chris Kolakowski

We’ve asked our ECW historians to reflect on this year’s symposium and share with us one or two takeaways they came away with. Next up: Chris Kolakowski.

“The symposium was another home run, and another energetic exchange of ideas about the Civil War and its legacy. My major takeaway is that the Civil War’s legacy is vast, layered, and in some ways still evolving. Our discussions sharpened the fact that the Civil War was the defining event in U.S. history.”
