October 9, 2018

The Southern Maryland Civil War Round Table is pleased to announce that its next meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 9, 2018 at 7:00pm at the College of Southern Maryland’s Learning Resources Center, Room LR-102, at 8730 Mitchell Road in La Plata, MD. (PLEASE NOTE THE ROOM CHANGE)

Guest Speaker:  Chris Mackowski

Tonight we take a look at arguably one of America’s greatest fighting generals and his battle against a foe that not even he could outflank.  We welcome Chris Mackowski and he discusses his book, “Grant’s Last Battle:  The Story Behind the Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant“.


Facing financial ruin and struggling against terminal throat cancer, Ulysses S. Grant fought his last battle to preserve the meaning of the American Civil War. His war of words, The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, would cement his place as not only one of America’s greatest heroes but also as one of its most sublime literary voices.

We welcome you to join us as we learn more about a man whose place in Civil War History, as well as in American History continues to be re-examined.  Attendance is free, but membership is recommended. For more information, please call 443-975-9142 or email at bsunderland@somdcwrt.org
