Sat 16 8:30am-4:00pm Educational Encounters with History

Our War, Our Constitution- Significant Constitutional and Legal Issues Arising from the American Civil War

A full-day indoor program with John Fitzpatrick, Licensed Battlefield Guide will be held in the Ford Education Center classroom located at the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center. Lunch and a continental breakfast are provided as part of the registration fee. Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center - Gettysburg Foundation & National Park Service

1195 Baltimore Pike
Gettysburg, PA
17325

1-877-874-2478 The United States Constitution and the laws enacted under it govern, impact, and protect us all. Its meaning and interpretation were stretched and tested greatly during the American Civil War. Did the South have the right to secede (perpetual union or voluntary compact)? Was the American Civil War a war (can the President blockade the ports of his own country)? What right did President Lincoln have to order or allow the arrest, without charge, of thousands of American citizens (suspension of the "Great Writ")? Did the United States have a claim against Great Britain under international law, for her role in support, directly or indirectly, of the Confederacy such as the Seaborne Blockade Runners, Raiders and Rams originating there (treaty/arbitration)? How were all these issues ultimately resolved- the President, the Congress, the Supreme Court, an International Tribunal? Join Licensed Battlefield Guide John Fitzpatrick, also an attorney and arbitrator, for a lecture and discussion of these important issues- important then and relevant today.

Registration deadline is August 1, 2014 and the event is open to Members and Non-members. The cost is $80 for Members and $105 for Non-members.
