The Michigan Regimental Round Table
We hope that everyone has started the new year on a positive note.The Roundtable will not have a Monday, January 25, 2021 meeting. Our January, 2021 Newsletter is available here. We are optimistic regarding 2021—at least some meetings and the fall trip to the Culpepper area (see below). Jeanie Graham said that the library has reimbursed us for all of our missed 2020 meetings. There will be a newsletter later in the month.
A new year is here, which means it is time to begin paying our $25 membership dues for 2021. Send your check to our Treasurer, Jeanie Graham. Please make your check out to Jeanie Graham as the Bank does not like checks made out to the Roundtable. Her mailing address is Jeanie Graham, 29835 Northbrook, Farmington Hills, MI 48334-2326.
We have decided to postpone (not cancel) our Brandy Station / Culpepper Field Trip until the Fall of 2021 because of the Covid-19 Virus. We also plan to keep Clark "Bud" Hall as our great Tour Guide.
In the meantime, we invite you to enjoy the virtual presentations listed on the left-hand menu below (using the Zoom app—also see below) from the Civil War Roundtable Congress (CWRT), which include:
- "Fridays with Grant" (Friday evenings 7 pm EST)
- "Guest Speakers" (Usually Wednesday evenings 7 pm EST)
Check this page periodically, because they frequently add Speaker Events with only a brief notice. Anyone using a smart phone, tablet, or a laptop or desktop PC equipped with a webcam and microphone/speaker can participate via ZOOM. If you are new to ZOOM, check out these resources on how to participate.
Lastly, in an effort to bring more awareness to the importance of the Western Theater, a new website and blog has been created that features original blog content along with tours. The site was created by Derrick Lindow, an eighth grade history teacher in Kentucky, and currently has a half dozen or so contributors, and others coming onboard such as NPS rangers James Lewis and Lee White, along with author David Powell.
