Civil War Sesquicentennial Lecture Series
In the fall of 2014 through the spring of 2015, the CCHEC offered a Civil War Sesquicentennial Lecture Series that was well-attended. It was sponsored by the Mississippi Humanities Council.
Delta State University and the Coahoma County Higher Education Center in Clarksdale hosted four lectures featuring Civil War Scholars from the University of Mississippi, Mississippi State University, and the University of Memphis. The series emphasized a variety of themes surrounding the American Civil War in these four engaging, thought-provoking lectures on a topic of great interest in Mississippi and the surrounding region during its 150 year anniversary. This particular academic program was organized by Dr. Chuck Westmoreland, Assistant Professor of History at Delta State University, with support from the CCHEC.
