In other news, we just finished our Ed Bearss Symposium on Leadership & Combat in the Civil War. We had a great turnout with nearly 50 participants and enjoyed hearing from Ed Bearss, Dennis Frye, George Franks III, Perry Jamieson, Tom Huntington, Wayne Motts, John Michael Priest, Richard Sommers and George Wunderlich. The sessions focused on a variety of topics including a lively panel discussion about Civil War Commanders (the good, bad, and ugly). Thank you for coming out! We also raised nearly $800 that will be donated to preservation and the Ed Bearss Award. To see photos from the Ed Bearss Symposium, click here.
Space is filling up very quickly for our “End of the War: Richmond, Petersburg, and Appomattox” based in Richmond, Va. If you have not registered, please do so soon. We expect a fully-booked seminar, but will start a wait-list when necessary. Click here for the itinerary.
Our May seminar is coming up next month with Lance Herdegen focused on the Iron Brigade. There are just a few spots left, click here to register. Looking forward to seeing our members and new members at our seminars this year.
All the best,
