Civil War Weekend  - March 13-15, 2015 - Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center - Blacksburg, Virginia


Civil War Weekend Lectures

For almost a quarter century, our annual Civil War Weekend has showcased Virginia Tech's many contributions to the world of Civil War history. In 2015, Tech alumni and other Civil War enthusiasts will gather once again in the comfortable on-campus facilities of the Inn at Virginia Tech. Speakers include current and former Tech faculty members such as James I. "Bud" Robertson, Jr., William C. "Jack" Davis, and Daniel B. Thorp, as well as new faces like Kimberly Kutz, the 2014-2015 Virginia Center for Civil War Studies postdoctoral fellow. I invite you to join us in Blacksburg from March 13-15, 2015.

You'll learn about topics you've never heard about before: Water and the Civil War; The education of U. S. Grant; The Lincoln robot Walt Disney built for the 1964 World's Fair; and Civil War doctors' attitudes toward enemy wounded. You'll also hear from some of the Virginia Tech history department's talented graduate students, who will be on hand to tell you about their research and other endeavors.

All this and more awaits you at Civil War Weekend 2015. I look forward to seeing you there.

With best wishes,
