Recapping Facebook LIVE from Chancellorsville

Lee-Jackson Facebook LiveIf you missed our Facebook LIVE events with the Civil War Trust this past week, you can still watch them—even if you’re not on Facebook. For your convenience, we’ve collected links for all episodes, below.

Emerging Civil War historians Edward Alexander, Dan Davis, Steward Henderson, Chris Mackowski, and Ryan Quint joined Kris White and Garry Adelman from the Civil War Trust for two days of on-location programs. (And ECW claims Kris, too, since he is one of our co-founders!) Beth Parnicza and Pete Maugle from the National Park Service and Tom Van Winkle, president of the Central Virginia Battlefields Trust, also joined in.

In case you missed the segments, you can watch through the Civil War Trust’s Facebook page, following these links:

Facebook will ask you if you want to log in or join up, but you can say “no” and still watch the videos–so tune in! The Trust has also archived past Facebook LIVE segments on YouTube, and the Chancellorsville episodes will eventually make their way there, too.

And don’t forget, we’ll be wrapped up the Chancellorsville 155th on Thursday, May 10, to commemorate the death of Stonewall Jackson. We’ll hit up Ellwood and the Jackson Shrine, and we have a few other surprises in store for the day, too!
