Civil War author to visit Camden
Dorn Headshot
Dr. T. Felder Dorn
Dr. T. Felder Dorn will be at Books on Broad, 944 Broad St., in Camden, October 8, from 5:30 - 7 .p.m to autograph copies of his book, Challenges on the Emmaus Road: Episcopal Bishops Confront Slavery, Civil War, and Emancipation. This book, which will be released this month by the University of South Carolina Press, covers the period 1840 – 1875 and examines the words and actions of Episcopal bishops of that era, first concerning slavery and then concerning the momentous events and issues spawned by that institution. During the antebellum period and the Civil War years, the primary response of Southern Episcopal bishops to slavery was to encourage and provide support for efforts within their dioceses to bring slaves into the church.
