H-CivWar is H-Net's network on scholarship, teaching, and outreach on the history of the American Civil War.
I would like to inform the network about a great Symposium opportunity coming up in September. LancasterHistory.org, Lancaster County's Historical Society & President James Buchanan's Wheatland in Lancaster, PA, will be offering The President James Buchanan National Symposium from September 18-19, 2015. Registration is open to everyone. Adults are $50 and students are $10. The Saturday boxed lunch is optional and costs $12.
