Background:
GCC concludes its impressive series of lectures on various aspects of the Civil War with two more:
the first focusing on one southern family and its struggles and controversies through the conflict; the second will cover the role of religion in the War.

On Tuesday, Dr. Terrianne Schulte of D’Youville College will explore the impact of war and its aftermath on the well-known Longstreet family, and in particular Confederate General James Longstreet, his wife and his uncle. “The Longstreet Family in War and Peace” will take place at 7:00pm in Room T102 of the Conable Technology Building on the GCC Campus in Batavia.

On Wednesday evening, the Rev. Gary Hakes of Virginia will discuss “Faith vs. Faith”—a look at the various roles religion and faith played in bringing about the war, providing hope through the conflict and helping the country recover afterward. His lecture gets underway at 7:00pm in the GCC Lima Campus Center. For directions to the Lima Campus Center go to: http://www.genesee.edu/about/campuses/Lima/map.cfm
