The ninth annual McClung Museum Civil War Lecture Series will be held once a month on Sundays at 2 pm in the museum auditorium. McClung Museum Civil War Curator, Joan Markel will shed light on the individual lives of Knoxvillians involved in the war.

This month’s lecture is “Knoxville’s Civilian War, The Lawyers.” Since the earliest days our town has had a robust legal community. Many of these men were particularly visible in civil service roles. Examination of the loyalty decisions and the course of political careers over the war years and beyond, reveals the complex interpretation of what constitutes loyalty.

Located at Frank H. McClung Museum of Natural History and Culture
