Our historian-in-residence, Chris Mackowski, will be speaking tonight (Nov. 13) at the Rapphannock Valley Civil War Roundtable in downtown Fredericksburg. Chris will be speaking about the “forgotten” battle of Mine Run, which took place in Locust Grove in late November 1863.
The roundtable meets at Brock’s Grill, with social time at 6:30 and dinner beginning at 6:45. The talk begins at 7:30. Reservations for dinner are required, however (click here for details). According to the roundtable, “You are welcome to attend the meeting without participating in the dinner, and you are also welcome to eat dinner in the regular section of the restaurant.”
Chris is currently at work on a battle about Mine Run, The Great Battle Never Fought: The Mine Run Campaign, November 26-December 1 1863. The book is due out next year as part of the Emerging Civil War Series.
