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.
My summer speaking schedule is beginning to fill up, but please feel free to contact me to set up a talk, book signing or teacher workshop.
