The Civil War comes to the Cazenovia Library

— On four Mondays beginning May 20, OASIS will conduct a class, “The Civil War: War is Hell – the Destructive Road to Reunion” from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Cazenovia Library. Tom Henry will present the class. Henry is a retired social studies teacher and adjunct professor of history at SUNY Cortland, and was first runner up for the New York State Teacher of the Year in 1999 and the secondary social studies teacher of the Year in 2002. He is a regular class presenter at OASIS and the Cazenovia Library.

The final 21 months of the Civil War introduced Americans to the roots of modern warfare. Henry will examine both the battlefields and the complex political issues that steered the war to its conclusion and left impressions still felt in our nation today.

Membership to OASIS is free. The fee for this four-part class is $40. For information call 464-6555, stop in our facility at 6333 St. Rt. 298, off Carrier Circle, next to the Double Tree Hotel, or visit oasisnet.org/syracuse.
