Fayetteville, NC – March 5, 2020
Three Fort Bragg archeologists will discuss the history of the area now occupied by Fort Bragg, from prehistoric times through the Civil War.
The presentation, part of Fayetteville Technical Community College’s Community History Lecture series, will be from 2-4 p.m. on March 11 in the multipurpose room at the Tony Rand Student Center.
The speakers are all members of Fort Bragg’s Cultural Resources Management Program. Dr. Joseph Herbert will speak about the prehistory of the Sandhills. Dr. Linda F. Carnes-McNaughton will discuss the historic settlement of the Sandhills. And Jonathan Schleier will talk about Monroe’s Crossroads, the site of one of the last all-cavalry battles of the Civil War. The site is on Fort Bragg.
Fort Bragg’s Cultural Resources Management Program encompasses archeology, historic preservation and curation of collections. The program actively promotes stewardship and preservation of Fort Bragg’s non-renewable cultural resources.
The lecture series is hosted by FTCC’s Arts & Humanities Department and is free and open to the public. Seating is limited so attendees are encouraged to come early. Parking is available behind the Tony Rand Student Center.
