Anya Jabour talked about her book Topsy-Turvy: How the Civil War Turned the World Upside Down for Southern Children (Ivan R. Dee, 2010). In the book she presents the Civil War as a major turning point in the lives of Southern children. Because the war was fought largely on Southern soil, parts of the region became a permanent landscape of war. Children in the Confederacy experienced the struggle in an especially profound and personal way. She responded to questions from members of the audience.

This program was a noon lecture held in the McGowan Theater in conjunction with the National Archives exhibition, “Discovering the Civil War,” marking the sesquicentennial of the Civil War.  close
