Our Purpose


The Blue and Gray Education Society is dedicated to assisting members in pursuing their  intellectual interests and in achieving their legacy by revealing our past for our future through the study and understanding of the War Between the States. We will help members achieve this by interpreting and preserving Civil War battlefields, conducting high quality seminars, promoting and publishing scholarly research, and by facilitating worthy educational endeavors.

The BGES logo


reveals the Past - a cannon, the Present - a man and his child pointing to the future as wisdom and lessons in character are shared from generation to generation fulfilling Joshua Chamberlain's prediction that generations we know not will come to these deathless fields to ponder and dream.
