News & Notes:

If you have a suggestion for a target for our preservation donations, please send the information to

Reminder - the treasurer is currently collecting next year's dues. Annual dues are still $15 for individuals and $20 for families.

Our annual book discussion will be about another battle. Please be ready to vote on your choice: Chickamauga, Wilderness, Malvern Hill, Harper's Ferry or Pea Ridge. Once the topic is announced, find a book on the subject and come to our discussion (most likely in March).

We all enjoy the speakers that come to us from outside the Society. However, budgetary realities being what they are, we cannot rely exclusively on outside speakers as they often come with fee requirements. A significant part of the year's slate of speakers must come from Society members. If you have a topic of interest you would like to pursue or one you have already put work in to, turn it into a talk for the Society. Please let Jan Rader know you would be willing to be a speaker.
