The Southern Maryland Civil War Roundtable is pleased to announce the first meeting of its second year will take place on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 at 7:00pm on the LaPlata campus of the College of Southern Maryland. The meeting will be held in the Business and industries Building, Chaney Enterprises Conference Room; Room 113.
Guest Speaker: Susan Youhn
The second year of the Southern Maryland Civil War Round table kicks off with a focus on our own backyard, as Susan Youhn will give a presentation on the first Civil War Hospital in Southern Maryland; Hammond Hospital. Susan will tell us about the trials and tribulations experienced by the hospital staff as the first Civil War medical facility in the Southern Maryland area was established. This lecture will serve as a preview for our fall field trip on Saturday September 14, 2013. The day will begin with a tour of Civil War sites in St. Mary’s County and after a break for lunch at the Brome Howard Inn, we will proceed to Point Lookout, where Susan’s husband, TJ Youhn, will give us a tour of Fort Lincoln and tell us about the Prison Pen and the fortifications that remain at Point Lookout State Park. Meeting times, meeting places and cost to be announced.
We look forward to seeing all of our old friends, meeting new ones and hearing any tales of Civil War adventure from over the summer.
