Jewish Soldiers in Blue and Grey

Posted on November 16th, 2002 by

Jewish Soldiers in Blue and Grey Film Screening
At the Myerberg Center
August 23, 2011 / 7-9pm / FREE

Part of the SALON Series at the Edward A. Myerberg Center

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, this first-of-its-kind film reveals the little-known struggle facing Jewish Americans both in battle and on the home front during the nation's darkest hour.  The War split the Jewish community, with some prominent Jewish voices citing Torah to justify slavery, and others leading the abolitionist movement.  The film presents a splendid collection of photographic and lithographic stills, fascinating anecdotes, interviews with noted historians, and dramatic readings of letters and historical speeches.
