Soldier Mob in Keokuk: Violence Against the Press During the American Civil War
Join Stefan Lund, PhD candidate at the University of Virginia, as he discusses an 1863 mob attack by Union soldiers on a Keokuk newspaper. He will examine the context of similar Civil War Era violence against the press throughout the Midwest, how popular conceptions of loyalty and civic duty contributed to the violence, and its significance for the history of the First Amendment in war time.
