Civil War Roundtable Speaker What: Civil War Feuds:
A Family Tradition
Who: Peter Mullen
When: Monday
September 14, 2015 at 6:45PM
Where: Indiana State Library
(315 West Ohio Street)
Numerous feuds arose during these troubled times pitting neighbor against neighbor, family against family, and brother against brother resulting in conflicts lasting well into the twentieth century. This presentation is dedicated to all who suffered emotional or physical injury or death related to those troubled times in our nation's history with a commitment to NEVER allow a sequel of Americans against Americans to occur in the future of the United States of America. It focuses on notorious feuds that occurred in Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida with a blend of nineteenth century historical, political, and cultural aspects of each area.

Peter Mullen is a native-born Kentuckian and a graduate of the University of Louisville and Western Kentucky University, He currently lives in Callahan, Florida where he is a professor at Florida State College in Jacksonville. He is a member of the Speakers Bureau for the Georgia Historical Society, Sons of Confederate Veterans, Michigan Civil War Sesquicentennial, Connecticut Civil War Sesquicentennial, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, Anthropological Multicultural Association of the South, and Florida State College.
