The Civil War Trust Teacher Institute, held this year in Richmond, VA, is a great resource for History teachers with an interest in the civil war. The author attended this year’s program with the Civil War Trust, leading a talk and a tour of the Crater. The rich selection of historically interesting locations in Richmond added to this year’s Teacher’s Institute.

Key Takeaways:

  • The Civil War Trust hosted it’s annual teacher institute in Richmond, Virginia bringing together educators from across the country.
  • The author gave a talk on the history and memory of the Confederate battle flag which was well received and included an interesting discussion with other teachers present.
  • The Civil War Trust staff did an excellent job of organizing and running this event and any educators with an interest in Civil War history should look into the organization and next year’s event in Memphis.

“Thanks to the Civil War Trust for hosting another incredible teacher institute in Richmond, Virginia.”
