Laura Edwards presents the Gary C. and Eleanor G. Simons Lecture in American History
Please join Laura Edwards (Duke University) as she speaks on “Women, the Civil War, and the Legal Transformation of the United States. Edwards explores how legal changes that resulted from the Civil War actually unfolded in people’s houses and backyards–and thus involved women, even though they were denied extended federal protection for their civil and political rights. The talk will be held at 5:00 pm on 3 April 2013, in the Ustler Hall Atrium, with a reception to follow. A short response will be given by F.J. Webster.
