55th Annual Robert Fortenbaugh Memorial Lecture
The Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College presents the Robert Fortenbaugh Memorial Lecture each year on November 19, the anniversary of the Gettysburg address. The goal of the lecture is to speak to the general public without abandoning solid scholarly moorings. The 55th annual lecture features Dr. Martha Hodes, Professor of History at New York University. Professor Hodes most recent publication is Mourning Lincoln, names one of the 10 long-list finalists for the National Book Award in nonfiction and a Best Book of 2015 by the Wall Street Journal. Professor Hodes has presented her scholarship across the United States, in Europe, and Australia. She serves as a consultant for documentary and feature films, television and radio shows, and museum exhibitions on many aspects of American history.
