We are pleased to announce a few details about next year’s Seventh Annual Emerging Civil War Symposium at Stevenson Ridge. We posted some pictures from this year’s event here, and Emerging Civil War posted some additional pictures here, so if you want to see what a good time we had, check them out!
Next year, we’ll hold the Symposium on the first full week of August: August 7-9, 2020.
Our theme will be “Fallen Leaders.”
Our keynote speaker will be Gordon Rhea, author of a monumental five-part series on the 1864 Overland Campaign. Gordon will speak on the mortal wounding of Confederate cavalryman Jeb Stuart at the Battle of Yellow Tavern and its impact on the Army of Northern Virginia for the rest of the war.
On Sunday, historian Greg Mertz will give a tour of the Wilderness with a focus on the wounding of Confederate Lt. Gen. James Longstreet by his own men while executing a flank attack against Federal forces.
We’ll announce our full line-up of speakers later this fall.
Early bird tickets are now on sale for $155 each. That price is good until Dec. 31. After that, you’ll be able to buy tickets at the regular price of $175 each.
