President’s Message

Andrew Ackerman has generously donated his father’s entire Civil War library of books to the Round Table.  The books will be for sale at the November meeting.  They will be displayed before the meeting.  Please come early and peruse the books at your leisure.  On behalf of the Round Table I would like to thank Andrew for his very kind donation.

December, 13th will be our annual Holiday Party.  All guests are invited to partake in the festivities.  We ask that everyone bring a dish - appetizer, salad, entree, dessert - or paper goods to the meeting.  A list will be passed around at the November meeting so that all members can sign up.  The knowledgeable and dynamic author, Robert Macomber, will be the speaker.  In December the raffle is all-inclusive and not limited to Civil War items.  All donations will be greatly appreciated especially gift certificates.

A big THANK YOU goes to Alan Konzelman for his gracious donation of a brand new Keurig coffee maker.  Any coffee pods that you have would be greatly appreciated.  Just like the Civil War troops, we need our cup of Java.

Our program on Wednesday, November 8, 2017 will feature our own Robert Krasner.  His topic will be: Rutherford B. Hayes and the 23rd Ohio.  He was a member of the 23rd Ohio regiment, lawyer, politician, philanthropist, president of the National Prison Association, and father of eight.

October 11, 2017 Program:

Due to a scheduling issue, we cannot provide a synopsis of William McEachern’s talk at this time.  His topic entitled: The Break Though: The Fall of the Confederacy, was about the battle of Petersburg and the penetration of the Confederate defenses in April 1865.  In the near future, the complete story will appear on our website.
