North Carolina Civil War Seminar Earlier This Month

And, i was happy to be able to attend it. It was primarily put on by the Battle of Bentonville State Historic Site and Friends of the Battle of Bentonville and held at the Paul A. Johnston Auditorium at the Johnston County Community College. //// For $25, you got to hear and see six noted Civil War authors and experts on events surrounding the Carolina Campaign of 1865 leading up to and following the Battle of Bentonville. //// And one of them was a man I have been wanting to see for many years. //// Speakers were BERT DUNKERLY The Confederate surrender at Bennett Place; WADE SOKOLOSKY Battles of Wyse Fork and Averasboro; CHRIS FONVIELLE Union Naval operations in NC in 1865; MARK BRADLEY the Battle of Bentonville; ERIC WITTENBERG Cavalry in the Carolina Campaign and ED BEARSS. //// Ed Bearss IS the foremost Civil War Scholar around these days. //// Glad to get to See These People. --Old Secesh
