Civil War Roundtable
October 10: Author,lecturer,and Civil War reenactor Harold George of Lakewood Ohio will once again be our featured speaker. Harold has been our guest on several occasions including last year’s program on George Armstrong Custer. This month he will present “The Medal of Honor, and it’s strange oddities and unique accomplishments”. The Medal of Honor was first issued during the Civil War in 1863. Since then more than 3,400 have been issued for acts of bravery and heroism,”above and beyond the call of duty”. In a few instances, however, the medal was awarded for rather unique, strange, and less than glorious reasons. This program discusses those instances.
