How can the history and legacy of the Civil War help students understand the issues facing the Republic in the 21st Century?

Christopher Newport University’s Center for American Studies in partnership with the American Civil War Center will sponsor a three-day workshop on the American Civil War. The workshop, led by Dr. Jonathan White, CNU Associate Professor of American Studies and Senior Fellow at the Center for American Studies, will examine Secession, the African America quest for freedom, and the pivotal role of Hampton Roads in the conflict. Teachers will visit the Civil War Center in Richmond, “Freedom Fortress” (Fort Monroe), and the USS Monitor Center at the Mariner’s Museum. 

Only 35 teachers will be selected.
The Application deadline is June 1, 2019.
Applicants are asked to make a $100 deposit at the time of application. The deposit will be refunded:

  • Upon completion of the workshop.
  • If an applicant withdraws before June 1, 2019.
  • If an applicant is not selected to attend.

Teachers will receive a stipend of $250.
Meals are provided.
Free Accommodations are available on request at CNU dormitories.
