I am excited to say that I will be attending this summers annual Gettysburg College Civil War Institute. I was awarded one of the few Public Historians Scholarships offered by the college.
This Institute is an annual conference hosted by the Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College where scholars, public historians, and the general public gather for five days to discuss Civil War topics and take battlefield tours. I was fortunate enough to attend another conference put on by the Institute in 2013. It was a tremendous learning and networking experience in my young career.
Keeping up with the sesqui cycle the conference will focus on the Civil War in 1865. This includes bus tours to Richmond and Petersburg!
I look forward to meeting new people and rekindling friendships from years past. If you are attending, let me know!
