This morning I signed on to give a presentation at the Civil War Trust’s National Teacher Institute, which will take place in Charleston, South Carolina between July 12-15. This is my third year working with Nicole Osier and Garry Adelman and I couldn’t be more excited. If you are a k-12 history teacher, who has a particular interest in the Civil War you should attend. This year I am going to talk about how to introduce students to the study of Civil War monuments.
For those of you who live in upstate New York I will speaking at Genessee Community College on March 6 about the battle of the Crater and historical memory. Finally, although it’s not a public talk I can’t tell you how excited I was yesterday to receive an invitation to join David Blight and Brian Jordan in their Civil War Memory seminar at Yale at the end of March.
