In October of 2017, Massachusetts officials removed one of the only markers in the state dedicated to the Confederacy from Fort Warren on Georges Island. This program will explore the history of the marker, the organization that erected it, and the broader national dialogue about how we remember the American Civil War.
This online program, co-presented by The National Park Service, will happen over Zoom. We kindly request that people who are interested in attending please see the REGISTRATION REQUIRED box on this page for more information.
