The Sarasota Civil War Symposium, World War I & II Conferences are HISTORY! Thanks to all Attendees; See you next year!

We'd like to thank our faculty, attendees, vendors, and the staff of the Sandcastle Resort for once again making these events a grand mid-winter pleasure!

See you in Sarasota in January 2019!
