National POW Museum 20th Anniversary Lecture Series

Published 1:47 pm Saturday, July 28, 2018

ANDERSONVILLE — Andersonville National Historic Site invites you to come out to the park and listen to some unfamiliar stories as part of the park’s quarterly lecture series in commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the opening of the National Prisoner of War Museum.
The third program, Women’s Roles at Andersonville, will be given on Saturday, Aug. 4. This program will be presented by Interns Jessica Greenman and Maci Mark, as well as Park Ranger Jennifer Hopkins. Greenman and Mark are Pohanka Interns from Gettysburg College who have been spending their summer at the park learning about the field of public history. Becoming a Pohanka intern is a selective process. All interested students must submit an application and interview for open positions across the National Park Service. This format gives students a taste of what applying and interviewing for potential jobs will be like after college graduation. Greenman and Mark interviewed for their summer positions last fall. The program will start promptly at 2:30 p.m. and lassts from 30 to 45 minutes, with time reserved for questions following the program.
The final program of the series will take place in December, discussing Galvanized Yankees and Rebels. These programs are free to the public. All three programs will take place in the National Prisoner of War Museum Theatre.
