The SUNY Plattsburgh chapter of the history honors society Phi Alpha Theta is proud to present the proceedings of the 2016 Phi Alpha Theta Upper New York Regional Conference. Hosted by the SUNY Plattsburgh Phi Alpha Theta chapter and held on the Plattsburgh campus on April 30, 2016, undergraduates from Castleton University, Hartwick College, Keene State College, Marist College, SUNY New Paltz, SUNY Plattsburgh, Saint Anselm College, and United States Military Academy West Point presented their original research. Based on primary source analysis and engagement with the relevant historiography, their papers covered a range of fascinating historical topics. All demonstrated the intellectual curiosity and academic professionalism that distinguishes members of Phi Alpha Theta. We offer our sincere thanks to all the presenters, panel moderators and commentators, chapter advisors, participants, and supporters.
