Visit us on select Friday afternoons for a lively and informative Civil War discussion.

There is no charge to participate. Advance registration is required as space is limited. Due to limited seating, should you find you are unable to attend, please call us to cancel your reservation so that another history fan can attend.

In compliance with CDC’s protocols for COVID and out of concern for your health and safety, tables and chairs will be spaced out for social distancing.

Attendees are welcome to ask John questions, which he will answer following the discussion.
