The Moccasin Bend Fall Lecture Series brings thought leaders and subject matter experts to share stories and experiences related to National Parks, conservation, history, American Indian culture, and much more. This year the series will be held inside the IMAX Theater in downtown Chattanooga. All lectures are on Monday evenings, and are free and open to the public with seating available on a first-come, first-served basis. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and all lectures begin at 7:00 p.m. More information can be found in the Our Projects section of the National Park Partners website, npp-ccm.org.

The final lecture will take place on Veterans Day, Monday, November 11, and will feature Timothy B. Smith, Ph.D., and National Park Service historian, Jim Ogden, for a discussion on “The Chickamauga Battlefield and the Civil War Reconciliation Movement.” Dr. Smith of the University of Tennessee-Martin and NPS historian Jim Ogden will have a lively discussion detailing the first reconciliation of Civil War veterans at Chickamauga, which gave rise to the battlefield preservation movement and the mixed results of attempts to heal a divided nation. Presented in partnership with the Chattanooga Area Historical Association and the History Department of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
