August 8, 2019 - Summer Discussion Series: 3 to 4 of our own Round Table Members
Members share a short (5 to 15 minute) presentation on some aspect of the Civil War that they personally find interesting and that they feel would be of interest to the Round Table. This could be the story of an ancestor, something about a particular soldier or sailor, an event, an incident or anecdote, a little-known fact, or something about uniforms, equipment or technology.  It could also be something involving local civil war sites or people.   The presentations should be factual, accurate and of general interest.   If you elect to use a visual presentation, the usual computer and A/V equipment will be available. Please contact Jim Gannon at 910-270 5534 or if you would like to make a presentation.
