Please join us in Blacksburg for the 29th annual Civil War Weekend. Combining expert speakers, the comforts of the Inn at Virginia Tech, and the incomparable camaraderie of the Hokie Nation, it’s a marvelous way to learn about fresh perspectives on Civil War history.
Our theme this year is “Civil War Leadership.” Throughout history it’s been crises, not periods of calm, that bring out the best in our leaders. And what a crisis Americans faced in the 1860s, with a deadly four-year fight over the future of slavery and the survival of America itself. This year, we’re asking our speakers to reflect on the lessons of Civil War era leadership, positive and negative, military and civilian.
