Civil War Roundtable: The USS Tyler and the Civil War Navy
"The USS Tyler and the Civil War Navy," a Civil War Roundtable event at the Delta Cultural Center, will be presented from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 17, in the Miller Annex. Several important battles and events are often interpreted by Civil War historians, but what is often overlooked is the importance of the Navy and how crucial this was to winning the war. Meet former history teacher and historian Jack Myers as he recounts stories of Civil War Navy successes and discusses one in particular: The U.S.S. Tyler.
