May 2024 Southern Maryland Civil War Round Table Meeting

May 14, 2024

The Southern Maryland Civil War Round Table is pleased to announce that its next meeting will be held Tuesday, May 14, 2024 at 7:00pm at The Maryland Veterans Museum, 11000 Crain Highway North, Newburg, MD 20664.

Guest Speaker:  Chris Mackowski

As we conclude season 12 of the Southern Maryland Civil War Round Table, we welcome back Chris Mackowski.  Those who remember his discussion of “Grant’s Last Battle: The Story Behind the Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant” will certainly enjoy tonight’s presentation, “Strike Them a Blow: Battle Along the North Anna River“.

Mr. Mackowski will describe for us the most overlooked segment of the Overland Campaign, which also represented some of the best chances both generals had for destroying each other’s armies—but the war of attrition had taken a personal toll on the commanders, peppering the North Anna River with lost opportunities.

As usual, attendance is free, but membership is encouraged. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns at
