Please join us Thursday February 18, 2010
In the Boulder City Museum
At 6:00 pm
For light refreshment and a talk.
Dr. Michael Green, Professor of History at the College of Southern Nevada and noted speaker on southern Nevada History will talk on “Boulder City and the Civil War Era?”
Really? Well, sort of. During the 1850s and 1860s Boulder City didn’t exist yet. The land that it is on was part of two territories with separate connections to the Civil War. This land would become part of Nevada. Nevada’s statehood was closely associated with the Civil War, becoming a state October 31, 1864. Professor Green will talk about this era and its short-term and long-term impact. He will also discuss how it relates to his new book, Politics and America in Crisis: The Coming of the Civil War.
Please join us to what promises to be an entertaining and informative evening.
Third Thursday talks are an on going program of the Boulder City Museum and Historical Association.
