Signature Conference Series

To explore the many facets and legacies of the Civil War, the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission sponsors an annual Signature Conference, in partnership with universities across the state. The highly-acclaimed Signature Conference series features the finest academic and public historians discussing topics that cover the full spectrum of Civil War and emancipation history.

The focus on new understandings of enduring themes ensures that Virginia’s sesquicentennial commemoration will have an educational legacy all its own. Each Signature Conference is published in both DVD and print format (details).

“[The book] offers a collection of discussions and talks that at once implore us to come to our own understanding through full and serious conversations and also conveys to us what a full and rich conversation looks like and what open and honest discussion can be.” - Civil War Monitor
