The Michael J. Colligan History Project proudly announces our new schedule of events, part of the series Hard Road to Liberty: Ohio & the Civil War. This fall sees an exciting line-up, including a panel discussion marking the 150th anniversary of the death of John Hunt Morgan, the “Thunderbolt of the Confederacy,” whose 1863 raid brought the Civil War to southwest Ohio, and live music by Jay Ungar and Molly Mason, whose “Ashokan Farewell” hauntingly accompanied Ken Burn’s documentary The Civil War (this event is co-sponsored by Miami Regionals Artist Series). And this October we will be honoring renowned Civil War historian James M. McPherson (Battle Cry of Freedom) with the 2014 John E. Dolibois History Prize.

Join us Tuesday September 16 for our opening event of this season, as Kelli Lyon Johnson (Miami University Hamilton) explores the “Fight Against Slavery: Lessons From History.”  This event is presented in co-operation with the Department of Justice and Community Studies, and Criminal Justice Week.
