A conference next month on Civil War sites in Kentucky will focus on the preservation and interpretation of battle sites. Organizers say the presenters at the conference in Danville will include representatives from nearly every Civil War-related federal agency and national nonprofit. It is designed as an educational forum for administrators, staff, docents, board members and volunteers.
"Battlefields and Beyond: Civil War Sites in the 21st Century" begins on Aug. 15.
It will showcase Kentucky sites with national significance, including the Perryville Battlefield and Camp Nelson Civil War Heritage Park.
The early bird registration deadline is Aug. 2. Registration is $125 per person prior to Aug. 2, or $175 after.
