Thanks again for coming to our presentation on Tuesday! We really appreciate the continued support from our long-time attendees, and we hope that our first-time guests found our discussion worthwhile and will return for future events.
The panels above show the sources we used for the presentation. All are worth reading if you have the time and inclination to do so!

Thanks again for coming and we hope to see you on May 30th to discuss another fascinating topic, the Campaign and Battle of Chancellorsville!
