Kulturabend. Tuesday, March 3, 7 pm. Germans in the Civil War. Talk by LtCol Michael Larkin, USAF (Ret.). The story of the Civil War in New Orleans was much more than just the running of the forts and Beast Butler. The city and the surrounding region were not the stereotypical “Rebel City” like Atlanta, Richmond or Montgomery. It should be remembered that voters in Jefferson Parish in January of 1861 rejected secession and elected to remain in the Union by a margin of four to one. The large number of immigrants ensured there were a great number of individuals here who had no stake in the major issues that drove the states to part ways. They came because there was greater opportunity here for them and their families than in Hanover, Alsace, Bavaria or Prussia. This talk will describe the New Orleans region during the War with a special focus on the significant contributions made by German immigrants. It will cover the occupiers who were German immigrants as well as the occupied. Food service will be available before the event, starting at 5:30. The event is free and open to the public.
