“Harvard in the Civil War” 

The 20th Massachusetts Regiment in the Civil War had so many Harvard graduates in its ranks that it was called the Harvard Regiment.  Richard Miller, the acclaimed author of “Harvard in the Civil War” and other books on Civil War history, will discuss the role of this distinguished regiment in the broader political and social context of mid-19th Century America.
