To coincide with our exhibit Vindication: Lew Wallace in 1864, we’re excited to present a great line-up of Civil War lectures, beginning this month and running through November.
This coming Wednesday, March 19, Scott Busenbark of Crawfordsville will be speaking on the role Brown Township played in the Civil War. Scott is a local historian and a Civil War enthusiast. This year he joined the board of the Lew Wallace Study Preservation Society. He is a member of the Civil War Trust and has done extensive research on his own family’s Civil War ancestors in addition to local ties to the Civil War. Scott works as a Fire Captain with 27 years of service in the Crawfordsville Fire Department.
