Booth Library to Host the ISHS History Symposium

EIU’s Booth Library will host the Illinois State Historical Society’s 2014 History Symposium on March 27-28. The symposium is co-sponsored by the History Department, Booth Library, the Coles County Historical Society, and the Illinois State Genealogical Society. The symposium commemorates the sesquicentennial anniversary of the Civil War, and specifically, the infamous Charleston “copperhead” riot of March 28, 1864.


Several students and professors from the History Department are participating as speakers. Visit the Illinois State Historical Society  website and click on “2014 Illinois History Symposium” for details. The best part? Registration is free for EIU students!
