Change of Date for the Emerging Civil War Symposium

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, Emerging Civil War has had to change the date of their 2015 symposium. Please mark your calendar: The Second Annual Emerging Civil War Symposium at Stevenson Ridge will be held August 7-9, 2015. 

The keynote speaker for the symposium, announced this week, will be Dana B. Shoaf, editor-in-cheif of Civil War Times magazine. As the Symposium will focus on Civil War Legacies, Dana will present "Give Them the Cold Steel (or not): A Military and Cultural History of the Bayonet." 

One place that the bayonet was used most notoriously was at Spotsylvania’s “Bloody Angle” on May 12, 1864. Stevenson Ridge sits on part of the Spotsy battlefield. “This is sure to give the story extra poignant resonance” says Chris, our historian-in-residence.

You can find out more details about Dana's talk, and other symposium details, at Emerging Civil War.

  1. Wow!! It is the prettiest historical place I have ever been to. I had booked the amazing place for my corporate events and everybody really appreciated my choice. It was a superb event. I would love to book Riddick House and the Lodge for my wedding party also!!
