January 17, 2017, Orange County (Southern California) Civil War Round Table

John will talk at the Orange County (Southern California) Civil War Round Table about George S. Bernard, soldier of the 12th Virginia Infantry, Petersburg lawyer, and compiler of "War Talks of Confederate Veterans" and "Civil War Talks."  The focus will be on the experience of Bernard and his unit on August 19, 1864, in "The No-Name Battle" against IX Corps just south of Petersburg, part of the battle of Globe Tavern.  This is described in John's most recent book, "The Siege of Petersburg: The Battles for the Weldon Railroad, August 1864."  Books will be for sale at discounts.
