Like most in-term chief executives, he was as vilified as respected.  A talented, tortured and complex man, Jefferson F. Davis served one desperate term as the Confederacy’s first and only president.  Join us, on the 150th anniversary of his capture, as we take an in-depth look at the man, the president and his legacy that is synonymous with “the Lost Cause.”

Lecturer: Fred W. Kiger ’74 (’77 MAT) leads our Civil War battlefield study programs and teaches several GAA courses each semester. He is the creator of the field guide The Civil War: A History of the War Between the States (Workman) and has two degrees from UNC, a bachelor’s in history and a master of arts in teaching with an emphasis in history.
