Jon Stallard

Local broadcaster and historian Jon Stallard will be the speaker for the next three-part course—“Landscape Turned Red: The Battle of Antietam”—to be presented by the Rappahannock Community College Educational Foundation’s Rappahannock Institute for Lifelong Learning (RILL). The lectures will take place on RCC’s Warsaw Campus, from 1 to 3 p.m., on April 22 and 29, and May 6 (Fridays). All interested persons are invited to register and attend.

Inspired by victories defending his beloved Virginia, Robert E. Lee launched his most ambitious offensive with an invasion of the northern states in September 1862. But his Union counterpart, George B. McClellan, had advance knowledge of Lee’s entire battle plan, and was waiting for him on the banks of Antietam Creek. This course covers the personalities, politics, and tactics of the Battle of Antietam . . . not only the bloodiest battle of the American Civil War, but the bloodiest day in American history.

Jon Stallard is a native of Richmond, Virginia. He holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in political science, history, and education from Virginia Commonwealth University. As well as being an author, lecturer, and genealogist, he is a co-owner and morning show co-host on WRAR Radio.

Advance registration is required to take RILL courses, with a tuition payment of $35.
