The Anti-Civil War Movement in the North: Copperheads in a Midwestern Community, 1861-1865
Copperheads, anti-war Democrats, protested against the policies of the Lincoln administration, opposed emancipation and resisted the draft with violence. Were the Copperheads expressing sentiments that mirrored concerns of their fellow citizens? Did they actually aid the Confederacy? Lecturer Nicole Etcheson will be available after the talk to sign her book, "A Generation at War: The Civil War Era in a Northern Community." Made possible by the Ruby W. and LaVon P. Linn Foundation.
