Discussion Session 3 — Families in Conflict: An Un-Civil War 
Thursday Mar. 1, 5:30pm – 8:30pm Belk Library 421

  • Time of Drums, John Ehle
  • Liljenquist Family Collection of Civil War Photographs (Library of Congress)

Discuss Time of Drums and the Liljenquist Family Collection.  Some points to consider:  What role does the border conflict play in shaping character in this novel?  What questions of morality and sacrifice emerge from the novel?  What do the Liljenquist photographs reveal about the soldiers who fought in the War?  What do they indicate about the nature of the war as an expression of social class and social identity?
