Symposium Spotlight: 2021 Symposium Schedule Release!

We are thrilled to announce the schedule for our upcoming Emerging Civil War Symposium at Stevenson Ridge! We have put together a slate of outstanding historians and two must-attend battlefield tours. We will have a dozen historians on-hand signing books, a large Civil War used book sale, raffles, and the networking and camaraderie like only Emerging Civil War can offer.

If you haven’t already purchased a ticket, there are only a handful remaining! This event typically sells out in the days and weeks leading up to it and this year looks to be no different. Visit our Symposium Page for more information and a link to purchase your ticket.

We can’t wait to welcome everyone back to Stevenson Ridge!
