Graffiti Houses–The Civil War from the Perspective of Individual Soldiers at Bull Run Library

May 30 @ 7:00 pm8:00 pm

For adults.

Dr. Stephen Robertson, Professor and Director of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History & New Media at George Mason University, will present a program on the “graffiti houses” of Northern Virginia, including Prince William County’s Ben Lomond. With the evacuation of the Confederate Army from Manassas, federal forces occupied the area by the spring of 1862. Soon, many of the plaster walls of Ben Lomond were covered in graffiti from floor to ceiling. Historically, graffiti has led to an understanding of the lifestyle and language of both ancient and modern cultures.
