On Sat., April 10, the Belmont University History Department and the Belmont Mansion co-sponsored “Belle Monte and the Civil War: A Teaching Symposium.” Organized by History Department Chair Brenda Jackson-Abernathy, the symposium brought to campus history teachers from three Middle Tennessee school districts to discuss effective methods, techniques and approaches to teaching Civil War history across the curriculum. Presentations by a panel of educators and the lively discussion that ensued elicited very favorable responses from those teachers in attendance.
