There were a few details to work out, but I can now announce that I will definitely be taking part in Longwood University’s annual Civil War Seminar on March 15 in Farmville, Virginia. The theme this year is 1864 and my topic – not surprisingly – will be the battle of the Crater. I am going to talk specifically about how Confederate soldiers assessed the battle. Other presenters include Eric Wittenberg, Gordon Rhea, Stephen Engle, and Brian Steel Wills. That’s a great line-up if you ask me and best of all, IT’S FREE.

This is turning out to be a busy speaking season here in the Boston area, but there is nothing better than heading back to my old home to talk about the Civil War, especially this year. Hope to see some of you in Farmville in March.

  1. Okay Kevin, I have my hotel reservation for that weekend. Looking forward to seeing you again and hearing more about Crater Memory.

    • Will be nice to see you, but I am not sure you are going to hear anything new. Perhaps a few new thoughts.

        • This is what happens when you have “followers” instead of readers. 🙂

        • That’s very funny. But after the Indiana weather of the last couple of weeks, being able to find an excuse to get away for a couple of days is well worth it.

Now that you've read the post, share your thoughts.
