Cool Spring 156th Commemoration
July 18 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Cool Spring 156th Commemoration Join Shenandoah University’s McCormick Civil War Institute, on Saturday, July 18, to commemorate the 156th anniversary of the Battle of Cool Spring via a Facebook Live event that will begin at 9 a.m. EST. The event–“Through Their Eyes”–will feature MCWI’s director Jonathan A. Noyalas, MA ’01, exploring the broader lessons we can learn about our nation’s most tumultuous moment through the individual experiences of soldiers who fought at Cool Spring. Among the themes discussed will be waning enthusiasm for war, the impact of war upon families, the long-term physical and emotional toll of battle, and the broader lessons about what occurs when people become divided to an unbridgeable point.
