2014: The Final Shots in Tennessee
Nov 13 - Nov 14, 2014
The Tennessee Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission is pleased to announce the 2014 Tennessee Signature Event keynote speaker will be famous British Civil War Scholar Amanda Foreman.
Ms. Foreman previously wrote the prize-winning book, Georgianna: Duchess of Devonshire (1999), before tackling the huge subject of the American Civil War in her latest prize-winning effort, "World on Fire: Britain's Crucial Role in the American Civil War”. Biographer Antonia Fraser has described Foreman's A World on Fire as "a real-life Gone with the Wind" while historian Brian Jenkins has praised Foreman for putting "a human face--many human faces--on a brutal conflict remorselessly descending into an inhuman total war."
The dates for the 2014 Tennessee Signature Event are November 13-14, 2014 in Franklin,TN. Check back for more information.
