Civil War Conversation- \'A Radical & Irreconcilable Difference’: The Hampton Roads Peace Conference
Wednesday, February 11, 2015 from 12:15 p.m. - 12:45 p.m. at The Museum of the Confederacy-Appomattox
This event is Free and Co-Sponsored with Appomattox Court House National Historical Park
On February 3, 1865, five men met for four hours aboard the US steamer River Queen on the prospect of a peaceful resolution to a war that had ravaged a divided nation for the better part of four years. Though no official record of what became known as the Hampton Roads Peace Conference exists, historians have been able to piece together much of what happened through the recollections of the participants. This lecture will focus on the events leading up to the Conference, the topics of discussion, and why it ultimately failed to bring about a peaceful settlement to the American Civil War. Join White House of the Confederacy guide Michael J. Thomas for this talk.

The familiar story of the Civil War tells of a predominately agricultural South pitted against a rapidly industrializing North. However, Adam Dean argues that the Republican Party\'s political ideology was fundamentally agrarian. In his new book, An Agrarian Republic: Farming, Antislavery Politics, and Nature Parks in the Civil War Era, Dean analyzes the changing debate over land development as it transitioned from focusing on the creation of a virtuous and orderly citizenry to being seen primarily as a "civilizing" mission. Hear Adam Dean, professor at Lynchburg College, discuss his new book on this little discussed subject. Dean will be signing books from 6:30 until 7:00 p.m. and the talk will begin at 7:00.
