The Civil Warriors Round Table will hold its first meeting of 2019 at 7PM on Wednesday, January 9th, at Weiler’s Deli in West Hills, CA. Susan Sweet of the Orange County CWRT will present on “Lesser Known Women of the Civil War (Union).”
You may have heard of famous women of the Union’s war effort like Clara Barton or Harriet Tubman or the women of the Sanitary Commission. But there were many more women deeply involved in the war – have you heard of Susie King Taylor or Malinda Blalock? Susan Sweet will present the stories of these lesser known heroines and many others who went to war for the North, most of whom you have never heard.
Susan Sweet is a long-standing and active member of the Orange County Civil War Round Table. She majored in history and mostly taught first grade during her teaching career. When she retired she took off on a cross country trip and discovered the Civil War. She came home, joined the Round Table and joined the Drum Barracks. She remains active attending reenactments and Civil War conferences.
As always, come join us before the program starts. Our members start assembling around 6PM for refreshments like the Weilers deli sandwich dinner and for the camaraderie of their fellow Civil Warriors. Meeting attendance is $5 which includes soft drinks, cookies and an entry in our book drawing. The sandwich dinner is $15 which includes attendance, a deli sandwich and exclusive Weilers side dishes. If you wish to partake of the dinner, please RSVP before noon of 1/9/19 to Dave Goracke at: email@example.com
and your dinner will be available when you arrive. Guests, new members and returning members are always welcome to join us for this and future meetings! If you can’t make this meeting, please consider one of our exciting upcoming meetings noted in our Future Presentations section.
