Lincoln vs. Jefferson conference in Charleston
For a southern view of the Civil War, consider attending the Stephen Dill Lee Institute annual conference on Feb. 4 and 5 in Charleston, S.C., where the war officially began on April 12, 1861 with the bombardment of Ft. Sumter. The city offers much to see that is war-related.
The institute, established in 2005, is the education arm of the Sons of Confederate Veterans and has among its goals the defense of the Confederate soldiers’ good name and presenting the true history of the South. The conference, titled "Lincoln vs. Jefferson: Opposing Visions For America," costs $150 and includes a Friday reception, Saturday banquet and a slate of six speakers, among them David Aiken, Kent Masterson Brown, Don Livingston and Thomas DiLorenzo.
