The Confederacy in History, Myth, & Memory

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Pre-Talk Reception at 5:30 P.M. Waite Rawls, Museum of the Confederacy

The Confederacy in history, myth, and memory continues to be a topic that fascinates a global audience. Why? How has the memory developed from the eras of the War, the Lost Cause, Civil Rights, and today? Waite Rawls, President and CEO of the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond, will address these and related questions as he demonstrates how this history is relevant in the 21st century, especially its complications and nuances.

Mr. Rawls spent 30 years as an investment banker in New York and Chicago before returning to his native Virginia 8 years ago. He is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute and has a JD and MBA from the University of Virginia.
