Jeffrey McClurken’s Lecture to Air on C-SPAN

Professor of History Jeffrey McClurken’s lecture “Before the Battle of Fredericksburg” will air on C-SPAN on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 6 p.m. and again at 10 p.m.

McClurken’s lecture, which was originally presented at the Fredericksburg Area Museum and Cultural Center in October, discusses the Civil War leading up to December 1862, when the Battle of Fredericksburg was fought. Using the words of politicians, military officers, journalists and locals from the 1860’s, McClurken sets the state for the battle by discussing the political situations in the North and South, and tracing changes in Union and Confederate commands.
