Talks on Tap : The Battle of Antietam, Then and Now

Talks on Tap : The Battle of Antietam, Then and Now

Raise a pint and your intellect at Suffolk Public Library's informal speaker series hosted at the Brick and Mortar Brewing Company. The Battle of Antietam, fought on September 17 1862, was the bloodiest in American military history and left a lasting mark on the families and rural communities around Sharpsburg, Maryland. Three professors from Christopher Newport University -- Christopher Loy, Andria Timmer, and Johnny Finn -- will discuss their research on the legacy of the battle and how present-day residents understand its significance in their lives and in American life more broadly.
