If you’re staying home from the Symposium this year because you figure you’ll catch the sessions on C-SPAN—whoops! There’s still time to get a ticket, though. You can sign up through the Symposium page on the ECW website. Join us for “The Great What-Ifs of the American Civil War” August 5-7, 2022 in Spotsylvania, Virginia.
Compared to previous years, C-SPAN only has 24 hours of American History programming instead of 48, and they no longer have a dedicated Civil War slot as part of that programming. They also underwent a consolidation of staff last year.
So, with fewer hours of programming available and fewer staff members to cover events, they aren’t able to make it Spotsylvania next month.
Hopefully YOU can, though. We’d love to see you in person!
