During our 19th Annual Conference we are once again going in search of facts related to the Lincoln assassination.  The Surratt Society is pleased to present its 2018 conference with new subjects related to the story and some new interpretations on old subjects – always things to think about.  You’ll meet new faces and renew friendships made during previous years.

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 “Ole Virginny,” the Northern Neck of Virginia and the birthplaces of George Washington and Robert E. Lee.  On Sunday, our bus will head “Down in the Valley,” the Shenandoah Valley, that is, to some small and interesting Civil War-related museums.  Separate reservations are required for these tours on a first-come basis.  See our Conference "Tour" page for more info!

 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 unique talk on the “afterlives” of some U.S. Presidents.  Be prepared for history you never learned in school…” Click the links above for more info about registration, our speakers, and more!
