A four-week college and university faculty member summer seminar for sixteen participants examining recent scholarship on the Civil War.

The Georgia Historical Society proposes to host a four-week, residential NEH Summer Seminar for College and University Teachers entitled, "The American Civil War at 150: New Approaches" from June 6, 2010 - July 2, 2010 in Savannah, Georgia. Educators will be engaged in rigorous study and pursuit of scholarly exploration on the American Civil War through participation in scholarly lectures, targeted readings, directed research in the GHS's library and archives, and select site visit. The program has been designed to challenge participants' preconceived notions of the reasons behind, the players within, and the consequences of a war that threatened to undermine the American experiment as laid out by the Founding Fathers and that propelled a fledgling nation further forward towards the attainment of the ideals of liberty and justice for a growing and diverse citizenry.
