Upcoming BCWRT speakers
Since the Blizzard of 2016 forced us to cancel the January meeting, we were able to reschedule Ed Bonekemper for our June 28 meeting. He will address the Lost Cause.
Mark your calendars for Saturday July 9. The National Park Service will conduct a bus trip on the 1864 Central Maryland raid conducted by CSA Brig. Gen. Bradley T.
Johnson and Major Harry W. Gilmore. Our own Daniel Carroll Toomey will serve as guide. The cost will be about $60.00. More information on this trip, which will include
an 'ice cream social' and a boxed lunch, will be available shortly.
Some events may have changed by the
time we go to print. When possible, please check with the event sponsor
prior to attending.
