Final Sesquicentennial Conference-- Part 3

About some of the speakers:

WILLIAM C. DAVIS: Professor of History at Virginia Tech and Director of Programming for the Virginia Center for Civil War Studies.  Author of over 50 books.  I have a lot of his Civil War books.  Always a good read.

ANDREW DUPPSTADT:  Curator of Education for the North Carolina Division of State Historic Sites.  Teaches at Carolina Coastal Community College.  He used to have a very good blog, but doesn't post anymore.

JESSICA BANDELL:  Research historian with North Carolina Office of Archives and History.  Co-author of forthcoming book "North Carolina Civil War Atlas: The Old North State at War."  Not familiar with her, but I look forward to her book.

CRAIG SYMONDS:  Retired professor USNA.  Biographer of Joseph E. Johnston.  Wrote books "Lincoln and His Admirals" (2008) and "The Civil War at Sea" (2010).  This man knows a whole lot about the war at sea.
