The Jewish American Experience in the Civil War

Hosted By: Haberman Institute

This hybrid event will feature the launch of a new book, Jewish Soldiers in the Civil War: The Union Army, authored by Professor Adam D. Mendelsohn. Dr. Mendelsohn will be in conversation with Professor Pamela Nadell, the Patrick Clendenen Chair in Women’s and Gender History, American University, and author of America’s Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today.

To showcase the wealth of resources on the Jewish experience in the Civil War, the evening will also feature a virtual tour of the Shapell Roster of Jewish Service in the American Civil War, an ongoing reappraisal of the military service of Jews who served in the Union and Confederate Armies and Navies from 1861 – 1865. The introduction will be guided by Adrienne DeArmas (Director, Shapell Roster). Meticulously compiled since 2009, the Shapell Roster is a publicly accessible digital history resource granting access to thousands of men who served.
