November 14–15 — VHC 2014 Fall Conference: A Fire Never Extinguished: How the Civil War Continues to Shape Civic and Cultural Life in America. Many of the issues associated with the Civil War resonate today—in Vermont and throughout the nation. VHC’s fall conference (five months before the end of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War) will examine the influence that the War has had and continues to have, and will seek to identify lessons vital to American democracy that still can be learned from the War and its aftermath as we continue to build “a more perfect union” in the twenty-first century. Presented in collaboration with the Vermont Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission and the National Park Service. More details.

Burlington, University of Vermont, Dudley H. Davis Center. Max Matthews, (802) 262-2626 x304.
