Civil War Expert Speaks at Lander

November 05, 2012
Civil War historian Mac Wyckoff, left, recently addressed a packed house at Lander University on the subject of "South Carolinians in Love and War." Wyckoff's lecture, arranged by the university's History Department and History Honor Society, focused on five Confederate soldiers from South Carolina, whose letters home he had studied. Four of the men, whom Wyckoff portrayed as "human beings, just like us," were killed in the war. In the photo, Wyckoff is seen conversing with audience member Tom Plowden of Edgefield.
