To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War’s end, the Knights of Columbus Museum is sponsoring an historical exhibition and lecture series.

The exhibit, Answering the Call, opens March 14, 2015, with a focus on religious ministry and medical care for soldiers. It also includes a history of the 9th Connecticut, a volunteer infantry regiment whose members were predominantly of Irish ancestry, many of whom were from New Haven. 

The initial presentation in the lecture series will be Religion, Service, and the Meaning of the American Civil War, by Dr. Matthew Warshauer, a professor of history at Central Connecticut State University, Saturday, March 21, at 2 p.m.

The author of four books, Dr. Warshauer specializes in 19th century political and constitutional history. His book Connecticut in the American Civil War: Slavery, Sacrifice, and Survival (2011), gives an account of the state’s often turbulent Civil War history. He also edited Inside Connecticut in the Civil War: Essays on One State’s Struggles, a book written by his graduate students.

Dr. Warshauer serves as co-chair of the Connecticut Civil War Commemoration Commission. His scholarship and work as a historian was recognized by the New England History Teacher’s Association with its 2012 Kidger Award and the Association for the Study of Connecticut History’s 2012 Bruce Fraser Award.

The exhibition and lecture are free and open to the public.
The Knights of Columbus Museum is located at 1 State Street in New Haven and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information or a schedule of future presentations call 203-865-0400 or visit kofcmuseum.org.
