San Francisco Civil War Round Table Meeting Thursday 16th June 2016 at the United Irish Cultural Center 2700 45th Avenue, San Francisco ========================================================== The meeting commenced at 6:45pm with the Pledge of Allegiance led by Steve Harrington.
The President announced Civil War reenactments to be held at Duncans Mills on July 16th - 17th.
Treasurer Mary Kunitake announced that members will be receiving an email reminding them that annual dues are now payable.
There being no other volunteers to serve on the Board, the following slate was unanimously elected: David Hargrave Steve Harrington Mary Kunitake Bob Hubbs Bruce Castleman
Featured speaker Bob Hubbs gave a presentation entitled "Four Regiments and Four Privates." Being from Illinois, Bob elected to follow the paths of four Illinois infantry regiments throughout the war. He also selected a private from each regiment and traced their careers and their family development. It was apparent that a tremendous amount of research had gone into the presentation, with much searching of archives and tracking of tombstones. All became clear at the very end when Bob revealed that the "Four Privates" were his great, great grandfathers. A stunned silence was followed by enthusiastic applause.
The Program Chair announced that September's topic will be "The Commodore and the Copperhead," presented by Bruce Castleman.
