Location: U.S. Capitol Visitor Center - Congressional South Conference Room
On February 3, 2011, The African American Civil War Memorial Museum (AACWMM), Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASALH), and the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH), representing the Coalition for the Civil War Sesquicentennial (a group of fourteen national organizations) and the Veterans Brain Trust will be hosting a briefing for Members of Congress and/or their Staff and members of working press on the 150th Anniversary of the American Civil War and the 112th Congress.
The American Civil War is the defining experience in our national history. The years between 2011 and 2015 provide a unique opportunity for Americans to explore the legacies of the Civil War which reaffirms American shared values of "One Nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." We call upon the Congress of the US to enact the necessary legislation to establish a commission to commemorate the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War.
The Congressional and Press Briefing will consist of presentation and material by the groups listed on:
