Grounded in the premise that no better resource exists for understanding this unique event than the battlefield itself, Pickett’s Charge at Gettysburg is the first battlefield guide of this famous assault. Wayne Motts will take attendees on a march toward the Copse of Trees with Armistead’s Virginians, lead an advance from the Confederate left with Pettigrew’s North Carolinians, and defend the Angle with Alonzo Cushing’s gunners and thousands of Union soldiers. The talk will include dozens of full-color original maps, scores of battlefield and other historic photographs, a unique mix of rare human interest stories, discussions of leadership controversies, a full Order of Battle, and a rare collection of artifacts directly related to the charge.

David D. Finny: Sixteen Summer Days: Custer Meets the Wolverines – June 28 to July 14, 1863

April 18 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The timing could not have been better for a 23 year old military man to write his name into the history books. On June 29, 1863, George Custer was promoted to Brigadier General and placed in command of the Michigan Cavalry Brigade. Without doubt Custer took advantage of that opportunity before, during, and after the Battle of Gettysburg. Within sixteen days of almost continual fighting Custer's Wolverine brigade would fight at Hanover, Hunterstown, East Cavalry Field, Monterey Pass, Hagerstown, Williamsport, and Falling Waters. This presentation explores not only the numerous engagements of the brigade, but also the reactions of Michigan Cavalry troopers to their youthful and newly appointed young commander.

The USS Isaac P. Smith was a Union gunboat ambushed by Confederate shore batteries and captured on the Stono River near Charleston on January 30, 1863. Although the US Navy lost other ships due to battle and capture during the war, the Smith was the only one captured by Confederate field batteries and used against the Union.  This presentation tells the story of the battle and the history of the Smith leading up to its capture, offers an account of the crew’s captivity, and describes the lives of its Executive Officer and Paymaster before and after the war.
