Virginia Center for Civil War Studies

2023-24 Year in Review

As we wrap up the 2023-24 academic year, we want to share with you all of the exciting recent events from the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies. This year we sponsored four free guest lectures including an in-person talk with NPR host Steve Inskeep, continued the annual Civil War Weekend (a tradition for more than 30 years) and visited numerous fourth-grade classrooms across the New River Valley. We are working on programming for 2024-25, check back soon for details! In the meantime, click the links below for YouTube and C-SPAN videos of our recent events. And if you are in Southwest Virginia this summer, check out our Civil War Driving Tour:
