Upcoming Talks

Just a quick reminder that I will be speaking to the Rockingham County Civil War Roundtable on Wednesday, September 19, at 7:30 p.m., in the Truman Room at the Preston Library on the campus of the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Virginia.  The title of my talk is, "The Battle of the Crater and Civil War Memory" and will focus specifically on the Confederate response to USCTs.  More information here.

I mentioned some time ago that there will be a symposium on Lee’s 200th at the University of Virginia from the end of September through October.  Turns out it is being organized as a course with the School of Continuing Studies.  If you plan on attending you must register for the course, which is $110.  Speakers include Gary Gallagher, Robert Krick, Elizabeth Pryor, William Davis, and Holt Merchant.  I will be leading a discussion with Bill Bergen on the final evening.  Click here for information on the program.

    I think you mean Rockbridge Round Table not Rockingham.
