One of Georgia’s finest historians, Dr. John C. Inscoe, will be with us this evening to discuss his exciting new book, ”The Civil War in Georgia: A New Georgia Encyclopedia Companion.” through articles drawn from the New Georgia Encyclopedia, this book chronicles the diversity of the state’s Civil War experiences, from secession to emancipation, from politics to the battlefield. The book is part of the observance of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, a commemoration that has brought nearly a dozen speakers to the Center for the Book so far this year. Inscoe is the Albert Saye Professor of History at UGA, the author of many books about Appalacchia and the Civil War in the South, and currently serves as secretary-treasurer of the Southern Historical Association.
