Civil War lecture series set

A month-long lecture series, “1861:  Virginia Prepares for War,” begins this week in Abingdon.  It is sponsored by the Arts Array of Virginia Highlands Community College in conjunction with the Washington County Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee and will be held free of charge every Thursday night in February in the Executive Auditorium of the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center.

Ben Jennings, the Arts Array coordinator, says that he hopes to have an annual spring lecture series over the next five years, each year exploring the impact of the Civil War in our region for the corresponding year 150 years ago, during the war.
