Symposium Spotlight: Jon Tracey

Welcome back to a new installment of our 2023 Emerging Civil War Symposium Spotlight as we continue announcing the speaker list! This week we feature ECW member and editor, Jon Tracey.

He holds a BA in History from Gettysburg College with minors in Public History and Civil War Era Studies and an MA from West Virginia University in Public History with a Certificate in Cultural Resource Management. Jon has worked extensively preserving and interpreting historic sites, including with the National Park Service. Most of his recent research focuses on either the complex topic of historical memory of the Civil War or Camp Letterman General Hospital, the largest hospital in the aftermath of the Battle of Gettysburg. He is currently a Historian/Cultural Resource Program Manager and manages the ECW Editorial Board that reviews guest post submissions.
