I’m really excited about this year’s Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College, set to begin June 20, 2014. The schedule for this year’s conference is here. It’s a terrific line-up and I’m looking forward to seeing old and new friends.
If you can’t attend the conference there are some options.
C-SPAN 3 is airing Saturday’s daytime program and two concurrent sessions live, with a rebroadcast starting at 6PM EDT. See the schedule here.
C-SPAN will tape Sunday’s program and one concurrent session to air on July 4 beginning at 5PM:
“William T. Sherman and the Atlanta Campaign” Keith Bohannon, University of West Georgia
“The United States Colored Troops at the Battle of the Crater” Emmanuel Dabney, Petersburg National Battlefield
“Exploring the Civil War POW Story” Eric Leonard, Andersonville National Historic Site
C-SPAN will tape Friday evening’s program and will air it on July 5 at 6PM EDT:
“The Virginia Campaigns of 1864” Gordon Rhea, author, and Peter Carmichael, Gettysburg College
No word yet on whether C-SPAN will tape any of the tours.

Gettysburg College history students will cover the conference on their blog, The Gettysburg Compiler.
