Center for the Study of the Civil War Era at Kennesaw State University



The Center for the Study of the Civil War Era continues to organize and host annual symposia for academic audiences and Civil War enthusiasts. Each symposium features nationally recognized experts. Papers presented at the scholarly symposium may be organized into proceedings and published for distribution to both symposium participants and Civil War scholars across the country.

In addition, the Center plans to initiate a series of Civil War themed educational trips to various domestic and international destinations.

The Center will also continue its work in securing both primary and secondary research materials. These manuscripts, photographs, microforms, and books must be collected, organized, maintained, and protected for scholars, students, and the interested public.


Each of the above initiatives requires funding, and benefactors of the Center enable the continued development of each of these activities.
