2018 Civil War Seminar Liberty University

It looks like LU has some great speakers lined up for this year's seminar. I hope to make it this year. I've attended quite a few times over the years (and have spoken at several) and I've always enjoyed myself, met lots of interesting people and learned quite a bit as well. If you're in the area, I would highly recommend. Note that admission is free.
