Join us for the Comm Summer Lecture Series featuring Destination Freedom’s E.J. Murphy. The talks will be held on one Sunday in June, July, and August and will feature food and drinks. The cost of admission is $10.00. You can purchase tickets online in advance or with cash at the door. 

Sunday, June 30th, 1:00 PM: “Northeastern Pennsylvania’s Civil War” 
This presentation will delve into the complex experiences of Northeastern Pennsylvanians during the Civil War era. By analyzing letters, newspapers, maps, and other primary sources, we will piece together the story of our region and its people in the mid-19th century.

Sunday, July 28th, 1:00 PM “This Military Show” 
Although often perceived as distant from the Civil War military conflicts, northern communities were significantly affected. This program will illuminate the presence of the U.S. military in Northeastern Pennsylvania during the war.

Sunday, August 25th, 1:00 PM “A Grand Army of Black Men”
In 1992, Cambridge University Press and scholar Edwin S. Redkey published “A Grand Army of Black Men: Letters from African-American Soldiers in the Union Army, 1861-1865,” a groundbreaking collection of letters from United States Colored Troops soldiers. This program will highlight some of these letters, focusing on the wartime experiences of soldiers from units that included individuals from Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Join us for an afternoon of education, food, drinks, and more, sponsored by Toyota of Scranton.
