The Center's annual 2019-2020 Crozer Lecture will take place on Thursday, January 23, at 5 PM in the Small Special Collections Library auditorium at UVA. Historian A. Wilson Greene will give a talk titled “‘A Perfect Hell of Blood’: The Battle of the Crater.” Greene is the former president of the Pamplin Historical Park and the National Museum of the Civil War Soldier and author of The Final Battles of the Petersburg Campaign.
The event is free and open to the public and no advance registration is required. Paid parking is available nearby at the Central Grounds Parking Garage located near the UVA bookstore.
Copies of Greene's newest book, A Campaign of Giants--The Battle for Petersburg, Volume 1: From the Crossing of the James to the Crater (UNC Press, 2018), will be available for purchase and there will be a chance to meet the author and have your book signed after our event concludes.
