From the Educators

April 2010
Dear Civil War Educator and Preservationist,

As many of you may have noticed the CWPT education department has made many changes in the past year. We have worked to streamline our system, publish more materials, and improve our existing programs. Because of these changes we know that we are providing better education opportunities and resources on the American Civil War.

At this time I am excited to announce another improvement; Garry Adelman will become CWPT's new Director of Education and History. Garry is the Vice-President of the Center for Civil War Photography, a Licensed Battlefield Guide at Gettysburg, and the author of numerous Civil War books and articles. Before taking his position at CWPT Garry served as a full-time senior historian at History Associates Incorporated (HAI). While at HAI Garry worked with CWPT on dozens of projects including the interpretation of the Slaughter Pen at Fredericksburg and the 3D photography feature.

Well respected by his peers for his knowledge of the Civil War, his energy and enthusiasm will help us develop more quality educational materials for buffs, novices, teachers, and students.
