(Canceled) Civil War Round Table: Major General Daniel Harvey Hill

September 6, 2019 @ 12:30 PM

(Canceled Due to the Impending Weather)

Visit the Museum on Friday afternoon to enjoy lunch in the Mariners’ Park Café and stimulating Civil War discussion with renowned historian, John Quarstein. There is no charge to participate. Lunch will be available for purchase at the café!

Daniel Harvey Hill was an aggressive commander, as well as deeply religious. His dry, sarcastic humor often got him into trouble with his superiors, particularly Robert E. Lee and Braxton Bragg. Nevertheless, Hill served decisively and bravely in battles, including Big Bethel, Antietam, and Chickamauga. He lost favor with Confederate President Jefferson Davis which relegated Hill to minor duties during the last year of the war.
