In recognition of our 18th Annual Conference falling on April Fools’ weekend, we are once again going in search of facts related to the Lincoln assassination.  The Surratt Society is pleased to present its 2017 conference with new subjects related to the story.  You’ll meet new faces and hear new interpretations and new details on topics that you may not have considered.

Following in our tradition, we will be offering two outstanding tours on Friday and Sunday of the conference.  The first tour will take you into other counties in Southern Maryland to learn the history of areas that supported tobacco, seafood, and the Confederacy.  On Sunday, our bus will head to Gettysburg to see new and refurbished museums not previously toured by conference attendees.  Separate reservations are required for these tours on a first-come basis.  See enclosed descriptions.

An opening reception at the museum’s James O. Hall Research Center will be held on Friday evening, beginning at 5:30 pm.  Saturday night’s banquet will feature a first-person presentation by “Mary Surratt.” Click the links above for more info about registration, our speakers, and more!
