Next Meeting: September 15, 2016

Location: West Pavilion at Drake Center, 151 West Galbraith Road. (More information about Drake Center and driving directions here.)

Speaker: David G. Moore, Washington, D.C.

Topic: William S. Rosecrans and the Union Victory

David Moore stumbled upon the story of William S. Rosecrans while on an unsuccessful search for Mary Surratt's grave in Washington DC's Mt. Olivet cemetery. That led to a research project that lasted more than twenty years and the writing of a book.  Mr. Moore’s curiosity was fanned by one overriding question.  How did it happen that a man who was considered in the 19th century to be one of the most important generals of the Civil War become a virtual unknown outside the Civil War community today?  His talk will discuss Rosecrans' accomplishments and the role politics played in his military career.  Mr. Moore is a native Washingtonian and has led tours of history sites along the east coast for more than 35 years.
