MCCWRT Discussion Group Meets March 25 in Crystal Lake

I am planning on being there.

The McHenry County Covil War Round Table discussion group will meet Saturday, March 25, 2017, at Panera Bread at 6000 Northwest Highway (US Highway 14) in Crystal lake, Illinois.

The topic will be Ulysses S. Grant Beyond Chattanooga.  All welcome to attend and add to the discussion or just listen.

I plan on mentioning the "Fistfight That Stopped a Battle" at Saunders Field during the Battle of the Wilderness and the sharpshooter who killed Gen. Sedgwick at the Battle of Spotsylvania.

Many think it might have been Charles D. Grace of the 4th Georgia from the town of LaGrange who killed Gen. Sedgwick.   This town also was home to the female militia unit known as the Nancy Harts, named after an American Revolution heroine.  I have written about them in this blog earlier this month.  I also have had quite a few blog entries on Nancy Hart in my Cooter's History Thing blog.

Maybe also find out if Spottsylvania is spelled with one or two ts?

See You There.  --Old Secesh
