James “Bud” Robertson, Fredericksburg, VA Topic: Water: The Most Overlooked Element of the Civil War

March 15 @ 7:15 pm - 8:45 pm
West Pavilion at Drake Center, 151 West Galbraith Road
Cincinnati, OH 45216 United States
+ Google Map

A hard look at the element itself--water for life, water as an agent of infection, water in military planning, etc. The "etc." is why water can be considered "the forgotten element."

This Danville, Va., native is the author or editor of more than 20 books that include such award-winning studies as Civil War! America Becomes One Nation, General A.P. Hill, and Soldiers Blue and Gray. His massive biography of Gen. “Stonewall” Jackson won eight national awards and was used as the base for the Ted Turner/Warner Bros. mega-movie, “Gods and Generals”. His latest book is After the Civil War: The Heroes, Villains, Soldiers, and Civilians Who Changed America. The recipient of every major award given in the Civil War field, and a lecturer of national acclaim, Dr. Robertson is probably more in demand as a speaker before Civil War groups than anyone else in the field.

+ Google Map

In September 1862, Cincinnati was under assault from an enemy whose goal was to pillage and burn the city, leaving destruction and fear in their wake. The assault was a major event that helped define the resolve of the citizens living in the Tristate region. Over 60,000 volunteers poured into the hills of Northern Kentucky to stop the Confederate onslaught that ripped through Kentucky virtually unchallenged, before turning north to threaten the Queen City. This is their story of leadership, patriotism, selflessness and courage.
