New 2010 Appearance Date
March 13, 2010 - 10:10
Frank Hijuelos, Newburgh, Indiana, Director of Planning and Development, has invited me to speak at Newburgh in honor of History Preservation week on Saturday, May 8, 6 PM, at the Old Abshire Ice House downtown next to the Newburgh Town Hall. I am preparing a completely new speech for the event titled, The Newburgh Civil War Home Guard before, during, and after the Confederate Raid of July 18, 1862. I have done extensive research on the Newburgh Home Guard and it is a subject that I love to get into. So, although I will be talking about the Confederate Raid detailed in Thunder From a Clear Sky, most of the information that I'll be talking about will be new to any audience and not covered in any book. I invite everyone to come.
