Annual Seminar

Every year the General Meade Society of Philadelphia holds a seminar focusing on some Meade-related aspect of the Civil War. This year the topic is “Meade and Grant–The Virginia Campaign of 1864.” It will take place on Sunday, February 16, 2014, at the conservatory at the West Laurel Hill Cemetery in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania. The speakers will be Ralph Peters, author of Cain at Gettysburg and Hell or Richmond; Tom Huntington (author of Searching for George Gordon Meade: The Forgotten Victor of Gettysburg) and Jerry McCormick (the world’s leading authority on General Andrew Humphreys). In addition, the Kearney Kommissary will serve its delicious food and Jim Schmick of Civil War and More will be on hand with a large selection of books. Like all the society events, it promises to be both informative and fun.

The $40 admission cost includes lunch. I encourage all the attend!
