In recognition of the sesquicentennial (150 year anniversary) of the Gettysburg Address, Yavapai College will host a free symposium November 12-17 at both the Prescott and Verde Valley campuses.

The symposium will feature a free lecture series given by the College’s instructors, as well as films relating to the American Civil War. The Yavapai College Liberal Arts Department and the Performing Arts Center sponsor the event.

Lecture topics range from photography and weapons to folk music and infectious disease. Yavapai College is partnering with the Prescott Film Festival to incorporate Civil War-themed movies into the Symposium, including Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln” and Edward Zwick’s “Glory.”

Additionally, the Yavapai College libraries at both campuses will feature Civil War collection materials. A number of Civil War-era artifacts will be on display from early November through December 9 at the Prescott campus library, and a collection display containing books and DVDs related to the Civil War and Gettysburg (which will be available for check-out) will be at the Verde Valley campus library.

The Verde Valley campus is located at 601 Black Hills Drive in Clarkdale, and the Prescott campus is at 1100 E. Sheldon Street in Prescott.

Go online to www.ycpac.com/gettysburg for a complete schedule of lectures and films, including times and locations. Call 928-776-2000 for more information.
