Lee and the Retreat from Gettysburg
Lexington, Kentucky attorney and author Kent Masterson Brown, will be our featured guest at the July 10th edition of the Franklin Civil War Round Table. Much has been written about the Battle of Gettysburg but little about those dramatic days that followed as General Robert E Lee and his army were on a march for survival. Until safely intoVirginia, the Army of Northern Virginia’s position was tentative at best while Washington pushed General Meade to pursue and destroy Lee’s command.
Brown’s Retreat from Gettysburg: Lee, Logistics and the Pennsylvania Campaign, has been well received and is one of the top selling “university” press editions today. You will not want to miss this!
The Franklin Civil War Round Table meets at the Williamson Country Library, Sunday June 12th. The event will begin at 3:00.
