Event Details

Join Civil War scholar and author Judith Giesberg, Ph.D. for an illustrated talk via ZOOM about the diaries of Emilie Davis. Emilie Davis was 22 years old in 1861 when the Civil War began.  Two years later she penned the words with which we were introduced to her, ‘Today has been a memorable day,’ opening up a small window into a black community in war.  In three slim pocket-sized diaries, Emilie wrote daily entries, recounting events big and small.  A seamstress by trade, Emilie recorded her sewing work in the pages of her diary.

Learn more about African American Emilie Davis’s diaries and her life.
