Chris Mackowski returns to us this December. Mackowski, as the featured speaker at the December 9th meeting, will address the Round Table about a financially-strapped Ulysses S. Grant’s race with death to complete his autobiography. When published it was to become known as The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant and thereby secured his family's financial future.
The mission of the Western North Carolina Civil War Round Table is to promote interest in and disseminate knowledge of the American Civil War through various speakers at regular Round Table meetings and other special events. It shall also be a goal of the Round Table to promote, encourage, and support Civil War Battlefield Preservation.
