A film about the Battle of Vicksburg will be presented to be followed by an open discussion.
The majority of members have visited the battle field and several have participated in guided tours. Most of us have read at least one book about Vicksburg and again a goodly number have read two or more books.
Even though we are not having guest speaker (The weather for this area is too tenuous in January to ask a speaker to risk life or limb to give us presentation!), the different perceptions of the battle by the different members will guarantee a great discussion and the film itself is very informative.
