Welcome back to the first installment of our Symposium Spotlight series for the 2020 Emerging Civil War Symposium. Several weeks ago we announced our theme, “Fallen Leaders of the Civil War,” along with our keynote speaker, Gordon Rhea. Historian Rhea will be speaking about J.E.B. Stuart’s mortal wounding at Yellow Tavern and its impact on the Army of Northern Virginia. We are pleased to share our full line-up of presenters for the 2020 Emerging Civil War Symposium with you today.

In addition to these speakers, Greg Mertz, National Park Service historian at Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park will be leading Sunday’s tour on the wounding of General James Longstreet during the battle of the Wilderness in May 1864 and the effects it will have on the Army of Northern Virginia during the remainder of the Overland Campaign.
