Battle of Vicksburg - Sunset Hills Historical Society - May 22

The May 22 meeting of the Sunset Hills Historical Society will feature a presentation focused on the Civil War and the Battle of Vicksburg by Park Ranger Shawn Williams.

“May 22nd was actually the day that Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant made an attack against the Confederate lines at Vicksburg that convinced him to resort to siege tactics,” explained Williams. “Once Vicksburg fell it split the Confederacy in two, allowing the Union to control the Mississippi River and use it for transportation and supplies.”

“Vicksburg was happening simultaneously to the Battle at Gettysburg, at opposite ends of the country, which created the turning point in the war,” added Williams.

Please join us in welcoming Ranger Shawn Williams and hearing this fascinating narration.  The meeting will be at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 22, at the Sunset Hills City Hall, 3939 South Lindbergh Blvd.  See you then!

About Reinhold Niebuhr
Although he may be best remembered today as the author of the famed “Serenity Prayer,” Reinhold Niebuhr — an outspoken American-born pastor, writer, and political activist — remains one of the most influential public theologians of our time. Presidents from Barack Obama to Jimmy Carter have credited his impact on their thinking, as well as John McCain, countless historians, theologians, political thinkers, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., who cited Niebuhr in his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.”

Niebuhr’s career spanned some of the most tumultuous decades in American history, from World War I through Vietnam, from the Great Depression through the Civil Rights Movement. An early pacifist and socialist, he was closely monitored by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI throughout his life, but would later serve as a consultant to the State Department during the Cold War.

Niebuhr rose from a small Midwest church pulpit to become the nation’s moral voice — an American conscience — during some of the most defining moments in recent history. His books, Moral Man and Immoral Society (1932), The Nature and Destiny of Man (1941–43) and The Irony of American History (1952), continue to influence theological and political thinking. An American original, his unique insights into human nature and its relationship to political movements and social justice propelled him to speak openly, and often critically, to an America consumed by moral certainty. For Niebuhr the priority was always justice, his guiding principle was hope in a redeemer God, and his weapon was an extraordinary gift for clarity of thought that made him a leading voice of conscience for his time.

Mark Colombo's personal journey into Civil War history

At the February meeting of the Sunset Hills Historical Society, our own City Alderman from Ward 4, Mark Colombo, will share his passion for Civil War history and some of his collectibles from that era.

As an amateur history enthusiast, he was intrigued by the amount of Civil War-era historical events that occurred here in St. Louis and around Missouri, as he discovered while visiting U. S. Grant’s former residence, nearby White Haven.

“By discussing my own personal journey I hope to inspire others to undertake their own journey,” said Colombo. “It has been exciting to study and collect artifacts from that time period.”
Colombo will focus on his own discoveries and display items from his collection. The conversation will cover a wide range of events during the civil war: a broad overview of the Civil War, weapons used at that time, and the role St. Louis and the surrounding areas played upon the outcome.

Please join us on Monday, February 27, at 7 p.m. for this fascinating look back in time.  Hope to see you there!

ABOLITIONIST!! The Life and Death of the Reverend Elijah P. Lovejoy by Barnes Bradshaw
The Reverend Elijah P. Lovejoy was not from Missouri, or even the Midwest. His family never owned slaves. But he saw the “outright evil” of the slavery system here in St. Louis and grew to be appalled by its very existence. After the murder of a freeman of color in 1836 he could no longer hide his rage and spoke of it in his newspaper, The Observer. The result of these writings, and his uncompromising anti-slavery tone, was that both he and his printing press would meet with utter destruction.

Student presentations at White Haven Nov 20

A typical day on the dig at Sappington House on excavation unit number one.

November 20, Sunday at 2:00 pm
Reports on the archaeological dig at Sappington House by the students; their experiences and their findings.

At long last, the student diggers speak. They reveal all; findings, experiences, insights, and research too.

Muffled since the June dig at Sappington house, the student diggers finally come forward in a tell-all moment. The Lindbergh and Ladue students have been in shroud of silence, contemplation, and research over the summer and into the fall. What have they been up to, really, in the last five months? Truth be told, they’ve probably been immersed in the life of a typical high school student.

But that won’t keep them from sharing some of what they experienced in their somewhat unusual experience of carrying out a full archaeological dig at the Sappington house in June. Nor can it keep them from revealing what they found. The Ladue students had the additional opportunity to put in more effort back in the classroom this fall. They added to their summer experience with further research into the Sappington house and Sappington family as it relates to the findings of the dig.

Come see and hear what the students have to tell on Sunday at White Haven.
Ulysses S. Grant National Historic Site auditorium at 7400 Grant Road, St. Louis, MO 63123. See map.
Seating limited to 70 people. Free and open to the public, but please RSVP. Reserve your seats by emailing Stephen Hanpeter at or call 314-918-1617.

They dug, now they talk!
