Scholarly Seminars - Registration is now open!!!!!!!!!!!

The Association's seminar program was established by President Fred Hawthorne in 1991 as a way of showcasing the talents of the Licensed Battlefield Guides.  Though many, many organizations have copied the concept and put on their own scholarly weekend seminars, the ALBG annual effort is highly rated after  nearly a quarter century in operation.

The present Seminar committee consists of Chairman Christina Moon, Stuart Dempsey, Fred Hawthorne, Deb Novotny, Guillermo Bosch, Phil Lechak, Ted Gajewski, Dennis Conroy,  Rich Kohr,  Chris Wolfe.  They are charged with planning and carrying out the annual spring and fall seminars.

Plans are now being finalized for the 2015 seminars. This year we will examine the fighting along the Emmitsburg Road.
  The dates are September 11 to 13, 2015.   Click here for additional details.

Registration for the Fall 2015 seminar  is now open.
