Round Table

BRUNSWICK – The Chamberlain Civil War Round Table will host a panel discussion on “Revisionism” at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 11, at the Brunswick Junior High School, Columbia Avenue.

The panel will focus on revisionism as it pertains to accepting long-held historical beliefs in recorded events due to newly uncovered primary sources, such as letters, diaries or research producing sometime radical changes. Revisionism can also be the result of a deliberate, dishonest effort on the part of an individual to change history.

The panel will include Thomas Desjardin of Pittsfield, writer and historian of the Civil War and historian for the Maine Department of Conservation; William Marvel, independent scholar from South Conway, N.H., and the author of a dozen books on the Civil War; and Steve Bunker of Gray, who has a longtime interest in historical preservation and interpretation.
