On Saturday, May 30, at 3:00 pm, Mendocino County Museum Presents Dr. William Bauer, Assistant Professor of History at University of Las Vegas, Nevada, and Round Valley Tribe member, will be giving a FREE talk on California Indian histories and memories of the Civil War at the Mendocino County Museum.
This discussion is presented in conjunction with the Museum’s two new exhibits which chronicle the Civil War years from both a national and local perspective. Lincoln: the Constitution and the Civil War is a nationally-touring exhibit that tells the story of Abraham Lincoln’s struggle to meet the constitutional challenges of the Civil War. Uncivil Homefront: Mendocino County during the Civil War, curated by Rebecca Montes, Assistant Professor of History at Mendocino College, focuses on the local effects of the Civil War through politics, the military experience, and the indentured servitude of Native Americans. The Museum will be offering free admission from May 16-June 21. For more information visit www.MendocinoMuseum.org or call 459-2736. The Museum is located at 400 East Commercial Street in Willits.
