Hello from the AASLH Annual Meeting!

Hello from the American Association of State and Local History’s Annual Meeting in Richmond, Virginia!

The theme for this year’s meeting is “Commemoration: The Promise of Remembrance and New Beginnings.” Very fitting with the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War and the 10th Anniversary of 9/11.

I’m excited to attend this year’s meeting: Adam Goodheart is the keynote speaker (I brought my copy of 1861 in hopes of getting it signed – fingers crossed!), there’s a session on the War of 1812 Bicentennial (my favorite period in American history) and my visit to Richmond will wrap up with a tour of colonial Williamsburg.

Are you attending AASLH? Interested in what’s going on? Check out the blog at or look for #AASLH2011 on Twitter.
