Harvard Professor John Stauffer: How the South Won The Civil War--and why it still matters!

With Lee's surrender to Grant at Appomattox, the South had lost the Civil War.  Yet, within less than three decades, southern blacks had been returned to near slavery, and the south effectively controlled the policies of the national government.  How did this happen?  And how does this still affect us even today?

John Stauffer is Chair of the History of American Civilization Program, and Professor of English and of African and African American Studies at Harvard University.  He is a leading scholar of the Civil War era, antislavery, and interracial relations.  The author or editor of seven books and more than 50 articles, Stauffer loves exploring literature to expand our understanding of history, and history to deepen our understanding of literature.

Built in 1887, the stunning landmark Down Town Association clubhouse is the perfect period setting for a discussion of the post-Civil War era.  The evening will begin with a reception for Professor Stauffer from 6 to 6:45 p.m. with open bar, cheeses, and light hors d'oeuvres.  Following Professor Stauffer's talk, Harvardwood members will be welcome to stay to purchase dinner (credit cards will be accepted from Harvardwood members) in the Down Town Association's very elegant dining room.  (Professor Stauffer will be staying for dinner himself.)
