SharePrint Lunch with books - After the Storm: Burial of the Civil War Dead

July 22, 2014

Wheeling, Ohio


Civil War expert Kathleen Logothetis Thompson will be at Lunch With Books at the Ohio County Public Library in Wheeling on Tuesday, July 22 at noon to present “After the Storm: Burial of the Civil War Dead.” When the fighting stops and armies move on, what happens to the dead left behind? Local efforts might take care of the problem initially, but the cleanup is a process that will last years as family members search for loved ones and governments seek ways to properly care for the dead. Kathleen Logothetis Thompson is pursuing her PhD at WVU. She has been an interpreter at Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania National Military Park, editor for the Emerging Civil War blog, and contributor to books in the Emerging Civil War book series. Lunch With Books programs are free and open to the public. Patrons are invited to bring a bag lunch and free beverages are served. Please visit ohiocountylibrary.org, call 304-232-0244, or visit facebook.com/lunchwithbooks for more information.
