President Notes

Autumn has arrived!  September 23rd was a perfect beginning for the new season and program year.  I was pleasantly surprised with September’s attendance.  50 members and guests gathered together on a perfect day at Chatham Manor’s upper terrace overlooking the river.  Our guest speaker, John Hennessy, gave a very interesting and thought provoking presentation “The Legacy of War: A Conversation about Remembering and Forgetting.”  John’s discussion on Civil War monuments made us think about what they represented when they were built vs how they are perceived today.  This is an emotional subject for most of us.  If you missed the meeting, I encourage you to watch the presentation on our Facebook site: https://www.facebook.com/CivilWarRoundTableofFredericksburg/

This month’s meeting will be held virtually using Zoom.  Please join me on October 28, 2020 at 6 p.m. for Matthew Hulbert’s presentation of “The Lawrence Massacre.”  Dr. Matthew Hulbert, Assistant Professor of History, Hampden-Sydney College, is an historian of nineteenth-century America, with special interests in the Civil War, guerrilla violence, memory, and film. He is the author or editor of four books, including The Ghosts of Guerrilla Memory: How Civil War Bushwhackers Became Gunslingers in the American West, which won the 2017 Wiley-Silver Prize, and Martial Culture, Silver Screen: War Movies and the Construction of American Identity (forthcoming from LSU Press in November).  Matthew is currently working on an intellectual biography of Major John Newman Edwards, CSA. Edwards served as Jo Shelby's adjutant during the war, spent two years in Mexican exile as a Confederado, created the legend of Jesse James, and laid the foundation for how Missouri bushwhackers would be remembered to this day.

There are no fees for this meeting, but registration is required. You can register through our website at http://cwrtf-org.vps-vetventures-org.vps.ezhostingserver.com/view-calendar or email me at info@cwrtf.org.  Confirmed registrants will receive a Zoom meeting invite.  This is an easy to program to use.  If you need assistance, call me directly at 719-650-8135.

Our return date to the UMW Jepson Alumni Executive Center is still undecided.  I should have more information by mid-October.  The Civil War Round Table of Fredericksburg is our organization.  In this interim period, I ask for your continued support through meeting participation.
