“He is coming to share information and his knowledge on Gettysburg and the Battle of Gettysburg,” Board of Governors President Lisa Riordan previously reported. “For history buffs, it’ll be an evening they don’t want to miss.”

Admission to the program is free, but reservations are requested.

“The CCA is proud to present ‘Inside the Civil War’ to the community as part of our 2020 series,” Executive Director Roxanne Dyer said. “Civic Hall is a beautiful and truly special space and we love to have the community come and engage in meaningful ways.”
