Teaching American History: Civil War & Reconstruction

Teaching American History: Civil War & Reconstruction

On Saturday, November 16, TeachingAmericanHistory.org and LancasterHistory will host a teacher seminar, taught by Dr. Dennis Boman, which will offer insight into the Civil War Era and Reconstruction Period. With the nation’s struggle to end slavery successful, Reconstruction should have been a peaceful process to repair the Union and to extend full civil and political rights to the former slaves. Instead, it degenerated into violence and strife with black civil and political rights indefinitely postponed. This seminar will use period documents to examine and explain the Reconstruction period.

Registration for the seminar begins at 8:30am on Saturday, November 16, 2019. The seminar will take place from 9am – 3pm. The seminar is free and open to all educators but requires advance registration. Participants will be assisted with acquiring ACT 48 credits and other credentials for this professional development experience by the TeachingAmericanHistory.org. Participants will also receive complimentary museum admission to LancasterHistory, and complimentary breakfast and lunch.
