“Battle for the Home Front: Revisiting the Role of Women in the Civil War” will be the topic of a lecture  by LeeAnn Whites March 30 in the Wilson Special Collections Library. The talk will begin at 5:45  p.m. in the Pleasants Family Assembly Room. A reception and viewing of the exhibit Home Front on the Hill: Chapel Hill and the University during the Civil War will precede the program at 5 p.m. in the Melba Remig Saltarelli Exhibit Room. Exhibit curators will offer a guided tour of the exhibit earlier that afternoon, at 3 p.m.

Whites, a history professor at the University of Missouri, wrote Gender Matters: Civil War, Reconstruction, and the Making of the New South and was an editor of Occupied Women: Gender, Military Occupation, and the American Civil War.

On April 13, Frank Fee, associate professor in the UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication, will discuss ways that news was gathered and disseminated to Orange County residents during the Civil War, in a gallery talk at 3 p.m. in the Melba Remig Saltarelli Exhibit Room.

Both events are in conjunction with the exhibit Home Front on the Hill: Chapel Hill and the University during the Civil War, part of the UNC Library’s four-year series of programming to mark the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Home Front on the Hill will be on view through May 8 in the Melba Remig Saltarelli Exhibit Room on the third floor of Wilson Library.
