Events

Join the Civil War Institute's Director, Peter Carmichael and Assistant Director, Ashley Whitehead Luskey every Thursday, 12:30 pm as they live-stream our new virtual program: "Finding the Source!" Over the course of the semester, this weekly program will feature virtual interviews with both academic and public historians of the Civil War era to discuss an historical source of particular interest to them in their latest research endeavors, as well as the source of their personal inspiration to join the history profession.

To watch these conversations LIVE, go to the CWI Facebook page at 12:30 pm on the day of the program. Live-streamed conversations are recorded and available for watching (or re-watching) anytime on our Facebook page or through the CWI YouTube channel.
