Upcoming Events

Tuesday, November 20, 6:30 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. - Movies At MacArthur "Death And the Civil War" 

With the coming of the Civil War, and the staggering casualties it ushered in, death entered the experience of the American people as it never had before — permanently altering the character of the republic and the psyche of the American people. Contending with death on an unprecedented scale posed challenges for which there were no ready answers when the war began. Americans worked to improvise new solutions, new institutions, and new ways of coping with death on an unimaginable scale.

Film will begin at 6:30. Doors open at 6. Free popcorn and drinks will be provided.
