September 12 Meeting of Round Table

The opening meeting of our 2017-18 campaign year was held at the Capital City Club on Tuesday, Sept. 12.  The program: Forrest vs. Stuart: Who Was the Greatest Confederate Cavalry General?  One speaker, Jeffry Wert, was unable to make it because of Hurricane Irma.  However, Brian Wills  presented both sides of the debate with commendable fairness.   

Plan now to attend the October  10 meeting at which time the Round Table will present the Richard Barksdale Harwell Award to Earl Hess.  Dr. Hess is the author of Braxton Bragg: The Most Hated Man in the Confederacy. 

President Grant Moseley thanks Gordon Jones for serving as president during the 2016-17 Campaign Year.

Brian Wills discusses the Confederacy's most famous cavalry leaders.
