Lecture: "Who Owns Moses Dallas?"

When: Thu., Sept. 26, 7:30 p.m. 2013

African-American steamboat pilot Moses Dallas worked for the Confederate Navy and guided an assault on the Union blockader Water Witch. Was he killed in battle, and buried with honors in Laurel Grove Cemetery, or did he fake his death, escape to Jacksonville, Fla., and join the Union Navy? Dr. Maurice Melton, author of "The Best Station of Them All: The Savannah Squadron, 1861-1865" investigates in this lecture.

Price: Free admission. Books available for purchase.
