      As part of the nationwide commemoration of George Washington on the
      bicentennial of his death, this public symposium will use the life of
      the most prominent Southerner of his time as a reference point for
      examining larger issues in the eighteenth- and
      early nineteenth-century South. Nationally known and emerging scholars
      of Southern history, literature, and culture will come together to
      assess the historical and cultural legacy of the evolving South during
      the early years of the new republic. The
      symposium will be held on the campus of the University of Southern
      Mississippi on October 28 and 29, 1999, and in Natchez on October 30,
      1999.

      Sessions are free and open to the public, though registration is
      required. To register, contact Continuing Education at the
