      TEXAS HISTORY TUESDAYS: Texas History and the Civil War

      Two Opportunities to Connect Online:
      10am & 1pm

      A museum educator, primary sources, and interesting content is a winning instructional combination. These programs are typically taught to elementary and middle school audiences, but we invite anyone who is looking for an enriching and fun experience to connect with us.

      Why did the United States divide and go to war against itself? How did this affect families, the economy, and enslaved people? What battles were fought within Texas' borders and what toll did these battles take on the soldiers? A Museum Educator will lead an exploration for a search for evidence from artifacts and paintings. A special guest from the past, Major General Granger, will tell his story about how his reading of the Emancipation Proclamation brought about the end of slavery in Texas.

      Zoom webinar registration required.
      You'll be able to ask questions during the Q and A at the end of the program.
