Collecting American War Letters
Twenty years ago, historian Andrew Carroll set out on a mission to preserve wartime letters as a way of honoring and remembering the experiences of American troops, veterans and their loved ones -- in their own words. Since then, Carroll has visited every state in the United States and 40 countries, including Iraq and Afghanistan, and collected more than 100,000 previously unpublished letters and emails written from the time of the American Revolution through the present day.
Carroll will be in PebbleCreek to share some of these extraordinary letters, now housed at The Center for American War Letters at Chapman University, and to collect any letters you wish to contribute. Along with preserving war-related letters, the Center shares correspondence with museums, schools, film producers, scholars and others to remind current and future generations of the sacrifices made by American service members and their families.
Premier Lectures are held in the Renaissance Theater at 7 p.m. Tickets to all Premier Lectures are $15 per person and may be purchased as of Oct. 1 online, before any Monday Morning Lecture, or at the LLL Center during office hours.
