Harpers Ferry Civil War Round Table Talk

Just returned from delivering a presentation to the Harpers Ferry Civil War Round Table, and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. Mike Musick, highly-regarded for his work with Civil War-era photographs and formerly of the National Archives, was a gracious and friendly host — not to mention a kindred spirit, for we both share a passion for wartime images. Al Alsdorf helped make arrangements and Dave Larsen made sure the technology was working.

We enjoyed an excellent pre-St. Patrick's Day feast of corned beef and cabbage, and then a book raffle.

Following the raffle, I gave my presentation, divided in two parts. The first focused on my journey from a collector to author, and the second a series of charts based upon my recently-completed database of the 200 soldiers I have profiled.

I could not have asked for a better evening, spent with new friends and a topic that deeply interested all of us.

Glad you came and shared your passion. Others beat me to your books, so I ordered both from Amazon as soon as I got home.
