Symposium Spotlight: 2022 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, panel discussions, and a battlefield tour. We will have a dozen historians on-hand signing books, 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!

  1. Looking forward to another great year On The Ridge with ECW. You all have a great event every year. Of course it helps to only live 5-miles away from the venue. A great calendar of events.
