Ted Alexander sent me the program for this year’s July Chambersburg Civil War Seminar, which will be held in Chambersburg July 23-28, 2008. Judging from the draft brochure that Ted sent along, this is going to be the mother of all Gettysburg seminars.

Among the presenters are Ed Bearss, Ted Alexander, Kent Masterson Brown, Jeff Wert, Ethan Rafuse, Rick Sauers, Dick Sommers, Troy Harman, Gary Kross, Wayne Wachsmuth, David Martin, Blake Magner, Scott Mingus, Joe Bilby, Eric Campbell, and others. It’s a veritable who’s who of Gettysburg scholars, and it looks like it’s going to be an absolutely spectacular program. Participants will have a huge variety of tours and talks to choose from. J.D. and I will be leading a full day tour of sites associated with Stuart’s Ride on Thursday, and then on Saturday afternoon, I will be leading a two-hour walking tour of Farnsworth’s Charge. I’m doing a talk on Ulric Dahlgren in the Gettysburg Campaign, and will be participating in at least one panel discussion. Jim McLean, proprietor of Butternut and Blue will be there peddling books.

This should be a can’t-miss for all of you Gettysburgaholics out there. When the actual schedule is available on the Chambersburg Chamber of Commerce’s web site, I will either post it here, or I will provide a link. At $745 for the entire event, which includes hotel room, meals, transportation, and guides, it’s really a tremendous deal. I hope to see some of you there.

    Oh wow I wish I could go! That sounds like a great event.

    By the way, I am hopefully going to see you et al. that Saturday night at the Reliance Mine. I will be the one looking out of place and too young to be in there.

    Are you sure that the hotel is included in the price?

    This (the 145th Anniversary program) really promises to be a real shindig of all things Gettysburg. Hope to see as many of you there as possible!

    I went to the Chambersburg Seminar at Antietam last year and the price did not include hotel….I believe it was around $700 for the whole package…it was very good
