We often focus on the way that the Civil War began and was
fought. We have not thought as much about the ways it
ended. In his presentation at our annual dinner meeting on
November 13, University of Richmond President Edward L.
Ayers will evoke the challenges faced by an array of
Americans in the immediate aftermath of the war, showing how
these individuals attempted to rebuild their lives.
Dr. Ayers assumed the UR presidency in July 2007. He was
previously dean of arts and sciences at the University of
Virginia, where he began teaching in 1980.
A historian of the American South, Dr. Ayers has written
and edited ten books.
