12:00pm - 1:30pmFood for Thought: The Shakers and the Civil War
As in any war there are those whose conscience prohibits them from taking up arms. The Shakers were such a group during the Civil War, but while the Shakers in New England were spared the direct impact of conflict, the Shakers in Kentucky were caught in the middle of the maelstrom. The journals of the Shakers at Pleasant Hill record “cannon for death and destruction within twenty paces” of their homes and tens of thousands of soldiers marching through their village. This presentation will bring to life the war as seen and experienced by the Shakers at Pleasant Hill, especially during the Perryville campaign in 1862.
Reservations required by June 15. $18 for KHS members and $25 for all other patrons.
Location: Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History
