2020 Civil War Institute Summer Conference

As of April 15, Gettysburg College has cancelled all summer programming for 2020, including the June CWI Conference, in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. All registered attendees will receive full refunds by mid-May. Unfortunately, it is impossible for us to hold your money as a deposit for next year.

On Saturday, June 13, the weekend the conference would have been held, we will feature a day of special programming via Facebook Live. We are currently discussing potential additional alternative programming as well, possibly a live-stream event around the anniversary of the battle of Gettysburg in July or a one-day event in Fall 2020. In the meantime, please tune in to our Facebook Live programs every Monday and Thursday at 7:00 p.m (or catch the recorded programs at your convenience). A full schedule of Facebook Live programming can be found on our Events page.
