Sunday at The Museum: What the Yankees Did to Us
Renowned author, Stephen Davis, will give a lecture in the Reception Hall and then a light reception will take place in the Old School History Museum. This event is free of charge; however, donations are appreciated.
Stephen Davis, a popular Atlanta historian, earned a Master's degree in American history from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and his Ph.D. from Emory University where he concentrated on the theme of the Civil War in Southern literature. Dr. Davis studied at Emory under Bell Irvin Wiley, the renowned Civil War author and historian.
Dr. Davis is the author of a book on the Atlanta Campaign, Atlanta Will Fall: Sherman, Joe Johnston and the Heavy Yankee Battalions (2001), and, he served as Book Review Editor for Blue and Gray Magazine from 1984 to 2005. This author has written more than a hundred articles in a number of scholarly and popular publications to include Civil War Times Illustrated and the Georgia Historical Quarterly.
Davis's recent book, What the Yankees Did to Us: Sherman's Bombardment and Wrecking of Atlanta, is published by Mercer University Press. His book, as reviewed in Civil War News, is "by far the most well-researched, thorough, and detailed account ever written about the 'wrecking' of Atlanta." And, last year the Georgia Writers' Association recognized Dr. Davis with its Georgia Author of the Year Award in the category of History.
