Gettysburg battlewalk with Dr. Charlie Fennell!

Dr. Charles Fennell spoke this past Wednesday at the monthly meeting of the York, Pennsylvania, Civil War Round Table. A humorous and knowledgeable expert on the 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, Dr. Fennell will be leading a battlewalk on November 1.
The York Civil War Round Table will be hosting a Battlefield Walk at the Gettysburg National Military Park with Charlie Fennell on Saturday, November 1, 2008, beginning at 1 P.M. Charlie will lead a detailed tour on one of the bloodiest and most fought over sections of the battlefield, the Rose Wheatfield and the nearby Stony Hill. The event is open to the public – you don’t have to be an attendee at York CWRT meetings.
Meet at the Peach Orchard to begin this interesting program. The cost is only $10.00, less than a movie and a soda, and the battlewalk and exercise in the great outdoors are better for both your mind and body than a stuffy theater and some overpaid actors! So, why not spend an autumn afternoon learning a little more about an important part of the Battle of Gettysburg?
Charlie Fennell is a licensed battlefield guide (LBG) at the Gettysburg National Military Park and a professor of history at Harrisburg Community College in Gettysburg (and a colleague of my son, who teaches history at several other HACC campus settings). This is the sixth year he has spoken to the York CWRT and guests.
