Dome Talks: a violent Civil War landscape with Any Masich

4/19/2017 - Dome Talks: a violent Civil War landscape with Any Masich

Author Masich recounts a violent Civil War landscape

San Bernardino County Museum Dome Talks series continues in April

The American Civil War was not limited to battles between North and South in the eastern United States. It had both profound implications and actual fighting in the Southwest, the consequences of which still resonate today. Andrew E. Masich, President and CEO of the Heinz History Center and author of Civil War in the Southwest Borderlands 1861-1867 is the next speaker in the San Bernardino County Museums Dome Talks series on Wednesday, April 19. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and advance tickets are recommended.

The story is a convincing new way of thinking about the civil wars that devastated the Southwest borderlands between 1861 and 1867, said author James F. Brooks. Indians, Hispanos, and Anglos waged war within and across ethnic divisions amid a swirl of strategies and tactics that produced a landscape of violence.

In addition to his role at the Smithsonian affiliate Heinz History Center, Masich is chair of the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and teaches history at Carnegie Mellon University. He is the author of The Civil War in Arizona; The Story of the California Volunteers and co-authored three other books with David F. Halaas: Cheyenne Dog Soldiers: a Ledgerbook History of Coups and Combat, Halfbreed: The Remarkable True Story of George Bent, and Dan Rooney: My 75 Years with the Pittsburgh Steelers and the NFL. Civil War in the Southwest Borderlands was published in February of this year. Copies will be available in the Museum Store before and after the talk for purchase and author signing.

Admission to a Dome Talks session is $15; museum members are charged $10. Light refreshments will be provided by the San Bernardino County Museum Association. Reservations are recommended as seats are limited; visit to purchase tickets; remaining available tickets can be purchased at the door.
