A. Wilson “Will” Greene has degrees in American History from Florida State and Louisiana State universities. He spent 16 years with the National Park service and was the founding director of Pamplin Historical Park and the National Museum of the Civil War near Petersburg. Join us as Mr. Greene discusses why The Battle of the Crater was called the “saddest affair I have witnessed in the war” by Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. The battle that was fought on July 30, 1864 could have been the event that broke the siege of Petersburg but instead turned into a bloody defeat for the Union. The lecture will begin at 7:30 PM, Tuesday, July 10, 2018 at the Bearden Banquet Hall, 5806 Kingston Pike. The lecture only costs $5 and students are free. Dinner is at 6:30 PM and costs $17 including the lecture. RSVP by NOON Monday, July 9th, at 865.671.9001
