With the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address and during a time of turmoil and change in many parts of the world, the theme of this year’s conference is “A New Birth of Freedom.” Our program will include topics and sessions that appeal to all people with a passion for history. Sessions will include topics on U.S., world, and Arizona history, as well as innovative ways to teach and share history. Proposals that do not fit into the conference theme are considered and accepted, as space allows.
