George Mason University will be hosting the sixth installment of the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission Signature Conference series on Saturday, May 31, 2014, 9:30 am-4 pm.
The Civil War was an intense regional struggle, but it was also an international event. The conference will juxtapose the Civil War with other internal conflicts during the same period—the national unifications in Europe, the struggles over identity in Japan, rebellions in China and in India.
Dr. Peter N. Stearns, Provost and Professor of History, chairs the program, which brings together historians of international acclaim to discuss the war's wider impacts.
Registration fee is $15 (conference only) or $25 (conference and lunch). For more information, visit www.VirginiaCivilWar.org.
