CIVIL WAR PRISONS

 

 

Lost in the romance of the Civil War is the fact that nearly 10% of all deaths – about 61,000 – occurred in enemy-managed prisons. Historian Tom Henry will reveal the grim record of Civil War prisons, both North and South, in his illustrated talk Prisons: The Dark Side of the Civil War on Thursday, November 21st at 6:30 PM. Registration appreciated at 685-5135.

Andersonville and Elmira are names etched in infamy, testaments to the intentional cruelty of war. Using these two prisons as primary examples, Henry’s presentation explores the dark world of Civil War prisons and the policy makers who created the nightmare.

Tom Henry, who retired from teaching social studies at Liverpool High School in 2009, has taught as an adjunct professor of history at SUNY Cortland and Syracuse University and given courses on US history, the US Constitution and the US Supreme Court at Oasis Senior Living in Syracuse. He was first runner up for the 1999 New York State Teacher of the Year award and was honored as the 2002 NYS Social Studies Teacher of the Year. Henry has been a writer for the education division of Colonial Williamsburg since 1997 and serves as a master teacher in Colonial Williamsburg’s Idea of America program.

For more information or to request/suggest a program, contact library director Nickie Marquis at 315-685-5135 or nmarquis@skaneateleslibrary.org.
