Dr. Daniel Sutherland is scheduled to deliver the keynote address for the fourth Summer History Symposium beginning at 7:30 p.m. June 9 in Te Ata Memorial Auditorium at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.

Sutherland is a distinguished professor of history at the University of Arkansas, where his teaching and research have traditionally focused on the American Civil War.
Sutherland’s keynote address will focus on the role that guerrilla warfare played in the American Civil War, both in advancing causes unobtainable by regular forces and in the degrading effect that it had on the Confederate war effort by weakening support for state and national governments and diminishing the trust citizens had in their officials to protect them.
