SUCCESSFUL VIRTUAL CONFERENCE

AMERICAN CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE (UK)

VIRTUAL CONFERENCE 2020

 

LINKS IN DETAIL BELOW SO THAT OTHERS MAY VIEW WHEN CONVENIENT

 

The Virtual Conference idea is simple, on 25-26 April we sat and watched a selection of seven videos of the Civil War at the same time you would have been listening to our speakers at Wokingham. We then discussed them with other members of the group on our WhatsApp or Facebook groups. The videos included talks by our American speakers, Eric Wittenberg and Scott Mingus.

 

We also simulated some other Conference favourites – an Icebreaker Quiz on Friday evening. An Auction by e-mail, and even some Civil War era music to listen to while you prepared your own three course dinner on Saturday night.

 

All the videos are still available on the internet if you want to watch them.

Why not take a few minutes to check out one of the American Battlefield Trust's four-minute video shorts? This one on “Battlefield Fences of the Civil War” piqued my interest
