Discovering the Civil War Teacher Preview
May 21, 2011
Discovering the Civil War Lecture, “Why Does the Civil War Matter Today?”
This special teacher event is an opportunity to learn more about the Civil War and consider its relevance to our lives today. The morning will begin with a lecture from an award-winning educator & Civil War expert David Finney. He will share rich stories to illuminate why the Civil War still matters and how we can teach this to our young people.

Mr. Finney has traveled to historic sites throughout the United States, observed and even narrated battle reenactments and spent years in the classroom teaching about the Civil War. Plan to gain a deeper level of understanding, hear the stories behind the artifacts, and be one of the first to visit our NEW exhibit. Mr. Finney’s lecture will be followed by a brief question & answer session. Then, teachers & guests will head to the Museum to visit the Discovering the Civil War exhibit alongside Mr. Finney and The Henry Ford education staff.
