On, Saturday afternoon April 18, 2020, at 2 PM in Handley Regional Library’s Robertson Auditorium (Winchester) I will deliver a lecture on “US Colored Troops’ Decisive Role ending the Civil War — and Black Confederate Soldiers’ Lack of Impact.” The talk will be unique in featuring information gleaned from Handley’s Archives on 167 US Colored Troops and 23 Union sailors who were born in Winchester, two of whom are buried locally in Orrick Cemetery.
I’m glad to talk to any size group regarding any topic from the twelve chapters in Collective Amnesia: American Apartheid. Give me a call — 703 867-4120 — or email me at email@example.com.
