Civil War Jeopardy Presented by Dr. Dave Schrader

  • Los Angeles FamilySearch Library @ The Los Angeles Mormon Temple 1591 East Temple Way Los Angeles, CA, 90024 United States (map)

Test your knowledge of Civil War history by participating as a contestant, or as part of the studio audience, as we play four boards of Civil War Jeopardy! If you do not know the answers, then you will be learning more about the Civil War.  Each contestant will represent one of three teams. Who among you can help their leader score more points? Dr. Dave Schrader has come up with another exciting, entertaining, and educational, night at our Round Table, and he has promised prizes for the winners.  You definitely do not want to miss this unusual and fun meeting.

Dr. Dave Schrader
Dr. Dave Schrader has been giving CWRT talks to Los Angeles audiences since 2013. He is particularly fascinated by “the rest of the story” – for example, the activities of support organizations such as the Signal Corps, the Quartermaster, and Commissary Corps, who often played major, but behind-the-scenes, roles in the abilities of generals and presidents to achieve their goals.  Or, people like Lincoln’s Secretaries, or his Ambassadors, that played a pivotal role in supporting the President and his policies. Or, the Fire-Eaters, who drummed up support for secession in the south.  Most of Dave’s talks are interactive so be prepared for audience participation!
