2015 Spring Outing
Civil War Symposium – 2014
This marks our third year co-operating with the folks at James A. Garfield National Historic Site to present a Civil War symposium to lead into their Civil War encampment. This year, the lead speaker was one of their reenactors, General Ulysses S. Grant. After a brief break for refreshments, provided by our organization, our own Arlan Byrne and his daughter Becky presented Cavalry in the Civil War. This is not the first talk they have done together, nor is this the first time they have given this talk (see below). As usual, they did an excellent job providing information with humor. Arlan also manages to provide an advertisement for local historical societies.
This has proven to be an excellent opportunity to showcase some of our speakers and we hope the program continues next year.
Arlan Byrne presents The Battle of Nashville as part of the Great Battles of the Civil War series
We have, in my opinion, one of the best round table newsletters around – thanks to the many contributors and, especially, to the editors. John Sandy set the bar when he took over. Carl Dodero, with John’s assistance, carried the level of excellence forward. Now, our newest member, Becky Byrne has taken over as editor and, judging by the first edition, is maintaining the level of excellence and improvement we have come to expect. Click below to read the latest issue.
The presentations are held the second Wednesday of each month at noon in the James A. Garfield Community Room of the Mentor Public Library. The next presentation is The Road to Appamattox. It will be held on Wednesday, April 8, 2015 at noon. (Note that this month’s presentation is the week before our meeting, rather than the day after.)
