Looking forward to seeing you at the KATH conference in Louisville this weekend. Check out the wonderful agenda – featuring Dr. George C. Herring who will kick off the conference theme centering on the War of 1812.
Starting at the Filson Historical Society on Friday at 7:30 p.m., you can meet the conference speakers. The next morning have breakfast at DuPont Manual High School and buy some wonderful history books from the University Press of Kentucky. The Phi Alpha Theta students of Campbellsville University are helping out too. After Dr. Herring speaks, you will be invited to discuss in small groups the impact and meaning of the War of 1812. Eat lunch and watch a living history performance by Harry Smith, a Kentucky Humanities Council Chautauqua character playing a militiaman from Kentucky. After that, we vote for the new KATH Board for 2013-14 and celebrate our student writing award-winners. At the end of the day, take a tour of the historic Halleck Hall with our wonderful host, DPM social studies teacher extraordinaire, Allison Hunt.
See the call for KATH Board members.
