FIVE FOR FREEDOM Comes to Montgomery County Civil War Round Table

September 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm

I will be discussing FIVE FOR FREEDOM: The African American Soldiers in John Brown’s Army at the Montgomery County Civil War Round Table on Thursday evening, September 13.  The public is invited.

To learn how and why I came to write about these men, their roots, their places in history and their legacy, please see the blog “We Pause for an Announcement” I posted when I submitted my manuscript in July 2017.

From its web site, here is a description of the Round Table:  “Our goal is to help educate the public about the Civil War and the period prior to the war and reconstruction. Our members come from a variety of backgrounds, all having an interest in the American Civil War.  Our membership is open to anyone who is interested and all are welcomed. For more than 30 years, the Round Table has brought leading historians, authors, and public and private officials together with members interested in this important period of American history. Fascinating presentations, spirited dialogue, and special trips to nearby historic sites are all part of the Round Table package.”

$25 includes dinner (reservation required), $5 donation if attending meeting only.  Dinner at 7. Program starts at 8.
