‘Grand Old Flag’ lecture slated Tuesday

THOMASVILLE — The Thomas County Historical Society’s annual Spring Lecture series kicks off Tuesday at the Thomas County Museum of History.

Ephraim Rotter, curator of Collections at the Thomas County Museum of History will present “Grand Old Flags: Saving, Restoring & Identifying the Confederate Flags at the Museum of History”  beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the Thomas County Museum of History.

The Spring Lecture series will commemorate the Civil War Sesquicentennial. The presentation will explore the process of preserving and researching the flags held in the collections of the Thomas County Historical Society.

Rotter has been the curator of the Thomas County Historical Society since 2007. A native of Montclair, N.J., Rotter previously worked as the assistance curator aboard the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial — and as a writing instructor and research assistant at Rutgers University — where he received his Master’s degree in Public History.

Currently, Rotter serves on Thomasville’s Historic Preservation Commission and has previously served on the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society Board of Directors, and is a life-long member of the Society of American Baseball Research.

The next lecture in the series will be March 18. Dr. David Williams, professor of History at Valdosta State University will present “Georgia’s Civil War Home Front.” Each lecture will occur at the Thomas County Museum of History located at 725 N. Dawson St., at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday evenings. Each event in March is free of charge.
