Making History Relevant

Trying to make history relevant at Gettysburg 
ADDENDUM:  Actually this session is scheduled for Friday (tomorrow), so I will not be tweeting it (or attending).  Sorry for the confusion.

I am starting day one of the AHA by attending a session (I had to RSVP to attend, so I don't know if it is still open to the public) called "A Continuing Conversation About Making History Relevant to All Americans."  It is sponsored by the National Council on Public History.

I will be tweeting the session at @johnfea1 (feel free to follow me) and will, of course, be using the #aha2014 hashtag.  Follow along.  You can also expect a short summary of the session later today or tomorrow here at The Way of Improvement Leads Home.

Here are the details:
