Virginia Tech - Invent the Future


This seminar has been canceled.

Please join us for the 38th annual meeting of the Virginia Tech Summer Civil War Seminar: Campaigning with Lee. This year we’ll meet in the charming city of Frederick, Maryland.

We have a marvelous week in store. For many, the highlight will be a guided tour around the hallowed ground of Gettysburg National Military Park. Seasoned tour guide Scott Hartwig will bring to life the history of those three momentous days in July 1863. We’ll also take a half-day tour of Monocacy, where Jubal Early battled against the forces of Union General Lew Wallace during Early’s ill-fated movement on Washington. On our free afternoon, you’ll have the chance to visit other local Civil War sites, including the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.

Our roster of speakers is first-rate. You’ll hear from Campaigning with Lee veterans like Dennis Frye, James I. “Bud” Robertson, Jr., and William C. “Jack” Davis, as well as up-and-coming Civil War professors like Jennifer Murray and Aaron Astor.

Frederick is a fantastic location with fascinating links to Civil War history. I look forward to seeing you there in June.

With best wishes,
