November MCCWRT Meeting-- Part 1: Elections and Christmas Party

Yesterday, November 8, 2016, the McHenry County Civil War Round Table (Illinois) met at the Woodstock Public Library.

Before that, several of us had dinner at Papa G's on the historic Woodstock Square, so famously featured in the movie "Groundhog Day."  Always good conversation and eating.  And, not always on the Civil War.

We had elections and everyone was voted in to their current offices.  Like most organizations, it is hard to get folks like me involved.

December 4th, we are having our annual Christmas Party at Grand Old Mill in Wonder Lake, built in 1866, the year after the war.  Mary Todd Lincoln will be featured doing a presentation on her spiritualism.

The discussion group will meet Saturday, November 26, at Panera Bread in Crystal Lake.  Topic will be U.S. Grant from Fort Donelson.

The December Discussion Group meeting is moved up to the third Saturday, December 17, as the fourth Saturday is Christmas Eve.
