The Dedham Historical Society 2012-13 lecture series will conclude April 18 William Folwer, with Civil War specialist and Northeastern University professor.
Fowler, a historian and author, will present “Under Two Flags: The Navy in the Civil War,” the subject of a book he wrote.
Fowler will describe the transformation of the US Navy from a ragtag fleet of aging steamers and paddleboats to one of the most powerful waterborne forces in the world. He has taught courses dealing with the history of Boston, maritime history, and the history of New England.
The lecture will begin at 7:30 p.m. and is free for members and $5 for non-members. For more information, contact the Dedham Historical Society at 781-326-1385 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
