Teachers from 10 states have been awarded Seminar scholarships over the past 10 years. These scholarships are made possible by the generous support of Seminar patrons. The Seminar on the American Revolution focuses on the military, political, and social history of the American Revolution (1775-1783), bringing together a panel of distinguished historians from around the country.
“This seminar continues to grow,” said Beth Hill, the Fort’s President and CEO. “We expect nearly 150 attendees for this weekend-seminar; a mixed audience of scholars and members of the general public with a deep interest in the history of the founding of our country.”
The Seminar takes place in the Deborah Clarke Mars Education Center and is open to the public; pre-registration is required.
