Moncure Conway returns to America to conduct a lecture tour
"In 1875-76 he [Conway] went on a lecture tour in America - his first since his departure in 1863 - during which he visisted Fredericksburg and had a poignant reconciliation with his father. The spirit carried over to Cincinnati, where he was presrent at the reuniting of the two church factions that had split so bitterly in 1859." D'Entremont, 221.
