The 2016 Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College is just over two weeks away. You can see the schedule here.
This year’s the CWI focuses on Reconstruction and the Legacy of the Civil War, and the faculty lineup is awesome. If you haven’t registered yet, the full-time positions are sold out.
This is a pleasant surprise to CWI Director Pete Carmichael, who just three short years ago predicted a CWI dedicated to Reconstruction would be sparsely attended at best:
If you put together a fantastic program, people will come to see it. I’ve attended every conference of Pete’s tenure as the CWI’s director, and I can tell you each program has been fantastic. My only complaint is that I can’t attend every one of the concurrent sessions and go on every one of the tours each year.
Some part-time spots are still available if you want to get to this year’s conference. I’m really looking forward to it.
