Special guests will share their Civil War knowledge at 2 p.m. on the following Saturdays:

Jan. 10- “The Sword and the Pen: A Life of Lew Wallace”

Ray Boomhower of the Indiana Historical Society will present a slide show and discussion about Lew Wallace, a notable Hoosier who served heroically during the Civil War and also wrote the book Ben Hur.

Living history presenter Kevin Stonerock will share songs and stories related to the Civil War.
