Teaching American History: The Vietnam War

On Saturday, May 4, TeachingAmericanHistory.org and LancasterHistory will host a teacher seminar which will offer an intensive look at the origins and conduct of the Vietnam War. The seminar will examine Lyndon B. Johnson’s actions as president and commander in chief resulting in the escalation of the war and the eventual collapse of his administration. Teachers will also enjoy a behind-the-scenes tour of related content in LancasterHistory’s collections. This seminar is designed in conjunction with LancasterHistory’s upcoming exhibition, Lancaster in the 60s.

Registration for the seminar begins at 8:30am on Saturday, May 4, 2019. The seminar will take place from 9am – 3pm. The seminar will include pedagogy and historical content sessions, a behind-the-scenes tour of related content at LancasterHistory, and lunch.
