5th Annual National Ed Bearss Symposium

Join us for our 5th Annual National Ed Bearss Symposium from April 4 to 8, 2018. This event promises to be one of the most diverse and interesting national events to date. The subject matter will cover everything from the colonial wars through and including WWI. The tours  we have scheduled will take us to many sites never before viewed at our event or any other historical seminars conducted by other groups.

This year we are introducing a Scholar in  Residence, Texas historian Allen Huffines. Of course, Ed Bearss is on board with an         examination of the Battle of Belleau Wood and a tour of the 1814 Battle of Baltimore. Also, please remember at this seminar we will raise money for the Ed Bearss Award. We are looking forward to seeing you as we travel through time and explore the military heritage of America.
