2016 Annual Conference in Review
A Look Back at our 2016 Conference in Gettysburg
On June 1-5, 2016, the Civil War Trust hosted its 2016 annual conference in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. With more than 500 members in attendance, this was our largest conference ever. Our members enjoyed lectures from noted historians, a night on the town in Gettysburg, and, of course, detailed tours of the Gettysburg battlefield given by top-notch guides.
Check out the photos below to see some of the highlights of the event!
