The Western North Carolina Civil War Round Table will begin the new 2013-14 season with its initial meeting at 7 p.m. at Western Carolina University Monday, Aug. 12, in the Mountain Heritage Center Auditorium. You can join the speaker and Round Table members at 5 p.m. for dinner at Bogart's in Sylva. We will then move to the Mountain Heritage Center for a social hour at 6:30 p.m. before the initial WNCCWRT presentation of the season at 7 p.m. by Phil Greenwalt, member of the Emerging Civil War assembly of Civil War writers and scholars. Greenwalt will bring to "light" the Antietam campaign, primarily dealing with its military implications, but he will also explore the political ramifications to a lesser extent. The lecture will be aided by a multi-media component.
Phil earned a B.A. in History from Wheeling Jesuit University and a M.A. in American History. He began his career in History as an intern at Fredricksberg and Spotsylvania Natonal Military Park which exposed him to those of the Emerging Civil War assembly. Phil presently serves as Historian with the National Park Service at George Washington Birthplace National Monument and Thomas Stone (signer of the Declaration of Independence) National Historic Site.
