The Civil War Institute at Manor College
The Civil War Institute at Manor College is a formal organization dedicated to preserving a period of time in our history that to this day has had a profound social, economic and religious impact on our nation. In association with the Delaware Valley Civil War Round Table, the Institute has developed a variety of subjects pertaining to the era of 1861-1865 and adapted each for all age levels.
Through the Institute, a Civil War Certificate Program was developed. In order to be awarded a certificate you must complete eight courses, four of which must be taken from the college's core curriculum. Attendance at all selected courses is expected.
