Our March Meeting
March 21, 2019
We were delighted to have Mr. Bob O'Connor as our program presenter. Bob has worked as a newspaper reporter as well as served as director of tourism for Washington County, MD where he has done tours of Antietam Battlefield and Harpers Ferry National Historical Park. 

Bob gave an interesting on the " Southern Oasis at Gettysburg " which had to do with the northernmost Confederate hospital located at the Daniel Lady Farm. Major General Joseph Johnson's division of the army of Northern Virginia had more than 1800 casualties at Culp's Hill. The officers were cared for at the farmhouse, while the enlisted were treated at the barn, which was the closest hospital to the battle.

Thirty two members and guests attended our March meeting.
Refreshments followed the presentation.

Several of our ladies provided a variety of tasty refreshments. Thank you ladies!
