Civil War Weekend is turning 25, and we invite you to come celebrate with us.

For a quarter century, Virginia Tech alumni and other history enthusiasts have gathered each March to share their passion for Civil War history. Join us in Blacksburg from March 18-20, 2016, as we continue the tradition.

We’ll hear from some of the best Civil War speakers around, including old friends James I. “Bud” Robertson, Jr. and William C. “Jack” Davis, as well as special visitors such as Barbara Gannon and Kenneth Noe. We’ll learn how Virginia Tech is bringing history into the digital age with the Civil War Driving Tour of Southwest Virginia and other online outreach programs. And we’ll be entertained with Civil War music from two period bands.

It all takes place right here on campus, in the charming facilities of the Inn at Virginia Tech. I look forward to welcoming you to Blacksburg in March.

With best wishes,
