President's message - 3/16/16

Happy Spring to the Members & Friends of the CWRT of the Merrimack!

I may be a bit early with my wishes, but with temperatures this day upwards of 60 degrees, it sure does feel like Spring has sprung.

The Roundtable is in its 21st year this year, having begun in Newburyport in 1995.  We are again dedicated to bringing you many wonderful speakers and fantastic topics relating to the American Civil War.  As the warm weather returns, do check our website for links to various places relating to the Civil War to visit right here in New England; there are a number of them.  We will also attempt to keep you up to date on any local Civil War reenactments and living histories that are taking place nearby.

One of the highlights of our year this year is the return of historian & actor Patrick Falci, known for portraying General A.P. Hill in the movie "Gettysburg."  Pat always gives us a very dramatic and exciting talk as he portrays General Hill and speaks to us this year on "Lee's Forgotten General: A.P. Hill at the Battle of Gettysburg."  Pat will be the speaker for our next meeting, Wed. April 13th - don't miss it!!!

Your Obedient Servant,
Liz Hallett, President
