Suicide Creek & Beyond: Ed Bearss, an American Icon

Our April 2014 Civil War seminar, “Weekend with Ed Bearss,” paid tribute to an American original. To preserve this rich history, we filmed four of Ed Bearss’ talks. This Ed Ed Bearss lectureBearss DVD Lecture Series is a 4 disc set from the man who some have called our greatest living national treasure. Discussions include Ed’s serious wounding in the Pacific in WWII, his work on salvaging and restoring the sunken gunboat U.S.S. Cairo, his classic work on the Battle of Brice’s Crossroads, and his personal discussions with LBJ in the planning and acquisition of the LBJ Ranch for the National Park Service.

Cost is $29.95 plus shipping and tax. A portion of the proceeds will support the Ed Bearss Award.
