Elbert County Historical Society Jan. 13, 2014

It is now confirmed that I will be the speaker at the Jan. 13, 2014 meeting of the Elbert County Historical Society in the town of my birth, Elberton, Georgia.

There I will speak about Gordon’s Brigade at Gettysburg as featured in my latest book, Georgia Remembers Gettysburg. I also plan to go into more detail about the other Elbert County soldiers that participated in the great battle. As you see in the book, Georgians played a large role in this famous battle and the companies from Elbert County and other North East Georgia counties were prominent in the conflict, particularly the first two days.

This will include a first hand account of two Elbert County men who captured 280 Federal soldiers then with two other Elbert County troops marched into the Yankee occupied portion of Gettysburg and walked around the town as if they owned it.

I hope all those who are nearby will come out to the Elbert County Public Library for this meeting where the meeting will begin at 6:00 pm. I’m know we’ll have a great time.
