I’m pleased to announce a speaking event scheduled for later this fall. I’ll be speaking to the Rufus Barringer Civil War Roundtable, in Southern Pines, North Carolina.
Subject: Siege and Reduction of Fort Sumter – story of three great
bombardments… and a lot of smaller ones!
Date: 7 PM, October 19, 2017.
Location: Southern Pines Civic Club, 105
S. Ashe St. Southern Pines, NC.
As readers well know, I love to discuss Fort Sumter. In particular the lesser-followed stories that sort of get overlooked between the opening shots of the war and the ceremony at the end of the war. In this case, I’ll focus on the Federal efforts to reduce Fort Sumter, by way of prolonged bombardment.
If you are in that part of the Carolinas, please consider stopping in!
