19th Annual Institute: Turning Points • July 8-12, 2013
The year 1863 has been regarded by many historians as the turning point of the Civil War. From Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation that freed slaves throughout the South and led to the formation of the United States Colored Troops to the death of “Stonewall” Jackson, and groundbreaking Union victories at Vicksburg and Gettysburg, it was a year of landmark events. Join us to learn about this a pivotal year.
Elementary, middle and high school educators who wish to broaden their knowledge of the Civil War are invited to apply. While the Museum seeks participants from a diversity of grade levels and school settings, preference will be given to teachers (grades 4-12) currently teaching the American Civil War.
The registration fee of $110 covers the notebook and all sessions, including the bus tour of the Chancellorsville battlefield. Complete the registration form to apply. Thanks to funding from the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, Virginia teachers will receive a stipend check of $110 to offset the registration fee.
Graduate Credit Option
Teachers who wish to take the course for 3 graduate semester hours may do so through the School of Professional & Continuing Studies for an additional fee. Complete the additional Summer School Registration form and submit with registration fee ($110) and tuition payment ($840). Additional course work before, during and after the Institute will be required of those seeking to earn graduate credit.
