The Harold B. Lee Library at Brigham Young University is hosting a House of Learning Lecture, “Inspiring Profiles of Civil War Soldier Saints,” Friday, March 15, at 2 p.m. in the library auditorium on the first level. The lecture is held in conjunction with the library’s Civil War exhibit and will be presented by Robert Freeman, a professor in the BYU Church History and Doctrine Department.
Admission is free.
Freeman specializes in Latter-day Saints in wartime, as well as the lives and ministries of the presidents of the Church.
More than 350 LDS Saints left their homes in Utah to serve the United States during the Civil War. The library’s Civil War exhibit explores a nation torn, a people devastated and a cause worth fighting for. During the exhibit's run, visitors on the first level can look at letters, photographs and other artifacts from the Civil War, as well as hear speeches and watch videos dedicated to the era.
