This will be the first time History Camp will be held in the Mid-Atlantic region, and registrations have already been received from far beyond the region, including from New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, North and South Carolina.
“When I started History Camp six years ago in Boston, I wanted to give people who believed in the importance of history a platform—a voice,” said Lee Wright, History Camp founder.  “We’ve had authors, professors, teachers, students, volunteer docents, park rangers, professional historians, amateur historians, a public health nurse, retired folks, an aerospace engineer, a surgeon, lawyers, a software developer, executive directors—nearly every age, background, and interest—present on nearly every era and aspect of history.  This is why was say, ‘Come to History Camp and spend a Saturday with some of the most interesting people in history.’”
