Welcome to the Michigan Regimental Round Table Home Page
Our January 30, 2023 Meeting
Our speaker, Jim Epperson from Ann Arbor, will begin around 7:00 pm after a 6:30 pm business meeting. We must leave the library by 8:45 pm.
The Roundtable is proud to welcome Jim Epperson of Ann Arbor as our January 2023 speaker.
Jim will speak on “Grant and Rosecrans—it all started at Iuka”. Jim will discuss several issues that resulted in a serious breach between the two Union generals that lasted several years after the war ended. The rift began at the Battle of Iuka, Mississippi that occurred on September 19, 1862. General Rosecrans was upset that General Grant’s men did not attack the Confederates.
Jim is a retired mathematics editor with a life-long interest in the Civil War. He maintains three Civil War websites, including Causes of the Civil War, The Siege of Richmond and Petersburg, and Civil War Chronologies. He serves as the webmaster for the Ann Arbor Civil War Roundtable.
Wearing a mask during our meeting is a personal decision. Masks will be available for your personal use.
