Delighted to have had the opportunity to present a talk about my new book, Faces of the Civil War Navies: An Album of Union and Confederate Sailors, to the Greater Pittsburgh Civil War Round Table this evening. A big thank you to John for inviting me, founder Allison for her hospitality, Rick for leading me to the venue and Joe for being my Powerpoint wingman! Last but not least, all the members who attended. Nice to have a packed house!
“The Greater Pittsburgh Civil War Round Table was founded in February 2000, in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for the purpose of providing Civil War enthusiasts, and anyone with an interest in The War Between The States, with the opportunity to meet regularly. We meet to study, discuss and learn about the war that shaped our nation, and the men and women of the Civil War Era, and the sacrifices they made. It is furthermore, the mission of this Round Table to educate the public about the urgent need for the preservation of battlefields, monuments, and Civil War sites.”
