NEW LONDON — This year’s annual “Dover Sunday” program will conclude the Dover Museum’s Civil War commemoration recognition, with Humanities Iowa Bureau speaker Michael Zahs at 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Linkin Center in New London.

Zahs will speak on “Women’s Perspective of the Civil War.”

Growing up on a nine-generation family farm near Haskins, Zahs attended a one-room school and received his bachelor and master degrees from University of Northern Iowa. Zahs was a junior high science and history teacher for 39 years in Washington, Iowa. He is a local and state historian, does cemetery work, is interested in historic preservation and log buildings, and has conducted “Iowa: Eye to I” tours throughout the state with Loren Horten.

Refreshments will be served following the program at the Dover Museum, where those present can visit with Zahs.

The program is free.

The railroad depot also will be open following the presentation.

The sites are handicap accessible.
