We will again be based at the Sandcastle Resort at Lido Beach. Whereas the hotel ownership plans to eventually replace the existing facility with two high rise towers with expanded meeting space, parking, and hotel room capacity, this rebuild will not begin anytime soon - and so we continue until further notice at this comfy, idyllic location with its “old-Florida” theme, on the warm white sands of Lido Beach.

We will not present the Sarasota Native American History Conference in 2018 – but expect to in 2019.

The 26th Annual Sarasota Civil War Symposium will be held January 18-20 (Thursday 8:30 AM through Saturday 12:00 N). Faculty: William C. “Jack” Davis, Edwin C. Bearss, Norman Dasinger, Jr., Joseph T. Glatthaar, Harold Holzer, John F. Marszalek, Robert N. Macomber, Janice McKay, James I. “Bud” Robertson, Frank J. Williams, and Brian Steel Wills. Registration Fee of $495 includes 2 lunches, Thursday PM reception and Saturday AM continental breakfast

The 7th Annual World War I Conference will be held on January 22 (Monday from 8:30 AM-4:00 PM). Faculty: Jay Wertz, Douglas Batson, Edwin C. Bearss, George Krainz, Robert F. Laplander, Erin R. Mahan and Mitchell Yockelson. Registration Fee of $195 includes lunch and continental breakfast.

The 13th Annual World War II Conference will be held January 23-24 (Tuesday 8:30 AM-Wednesday 4:30 PM). Faculty: Jay Wertz, Edwin C. Bearss, Roger Cirillo, Lee F. Kichen, Robert F. Laplander, Erin R. Mahan, Robert Mullauer, Steven W. Knott and Mitchell Yockelson. Registration Fee of $395 includes 2 lunches, a Tuesday PM reception and 2 continental breakfasts

Please note that we have scheduled the World War conferences closer to the end of the Civil War symposium so that those who attend all of these don’t need to spend too many additional hotel nights in between. And, to add additional value, we’ve added continental breakfasts for all attendees on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings during the World War conferences.

Hotel nightly room rates are:

Non-view Double: $144

Courtyard view Double: $164

Pool View Double: $183

Gulf Front King or Double: $204

Our attendees WILL NOT be assessed the Sandcastle’s $25 per day Resort Fee.
