What usually comes to mind with Antioch College in connection to war are the words and actions against war since the 1960s, but on Sunday, September 11, at 2:00 pm in the Great Room of the Yellow Springs Senior Center one of the Yellow Springs Historical Society's favorite speakers, Antioch College archivist Scott Sanders, will take those in attendance back to the 60s, in this case the 1860s, in a presentation on “Marching to a Different Drumbeat: Antioch College and the Civil War”. Sanders will expand on material covered in his “Songs from the Stacks” blog entries on the college's website, covering both the dramatic episodes like the actions of executed hero Marion A. Ross to the dedicated service of Lucy Salisbury Doolittle in the areas of health and sanitation.

Admission is free, and light refreshments will be served.
