David Wells: Christmas in Wartime
Wednesday, November 20 • 2:00 p.m.

The holiday season during wartime has weathered many changes as a direct result of the pressures of war. This program explores how Thanksgiving and Christmas traditions have evolved through the American Revolutionary War, American Civil War, World War I, World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War, into the familiar rituals we know today.

Independent historian David Wells attended Northeast Community College, the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, and University of Nebraska – Omaha. He has completed extensive research on Nebraska’s connection with the American Civil War and the Nebraska Department of the Grand Army of the Republic. His work on soldiers’ monuments and memorials in Nebraska was given a Certificate of Commendation by the American Association for State and Local History in 1997, and he has been a member of the Board of Directors of the Civil War Veterans Museum in Nebraska City since 1993.
