Extreme History Project Lecture | The Post-Civil War Memoir of James Howard Lowell

MOR is pleased to host the Extreme History Project lecture series that encourages public understanding of the way our history has shaped our present. Speakers take a fresh look at interesting historical topics.

Katherine Seaton Squires will speak to her experience of unearthing her great-great-grandfathers memoir, a firsthand account of his brutal journey west on a wagon train. She brings this tale to life, a memoir filled with colorful characters, narrow escapes and important historical events, such as the Baker Massacre during her lecture titled Finding a Place in Montana: The Post-Civil War Memoir of James Howard Lowell.

MOR invites adults to learn more about our past and future through various speakers year-round. We are proud to partner with the Gallatin Valley Friends of the Sciences, the Extreme History Project, and the Gallatin History Museum in lectures throughout the year at Museum of the Rockies. All lectures have a limited capacity and are open on a first-come, first-served basis. Attendees may not save seats for others.
