March 12, 2015 – Meeting Roundup – Steve French
March 9, 2015
Civil War buffs know that Martinsburg is right in the heart of the eastern battles. Antietam, Gettysburg, and Manassas, just to name a few battles, are within an easy drive. Belle Boyd, a famous spy, was a Martinsburg native. A church I once attended in Bunker Hill was used as a hospital and had graffiti written by soldiers from both sides on the walls. This week we are going to hear from Steve French, a civil war historian, who has recently published his third book on Civil War action in the eastern panhandle and surrounding region.
Pam Wagoner is still looking for volunteers to help with the Rotary booth at the Home Show this weekend at the mall. She especially needs people for Friday.
