Tim Mauch Saving Richmond's Battlefields 8:00 p.m., Tuesday, August 9, 2011, at the First Presbyterian Church, Richmond, VA., 4602 Cary Street Road, 23226 A parking lot is available behind the church with an entrance off the parking lot to the left and down a few stairs. Tim Mauch is the Supervisory Visitor Protection ranger at Richmond National Battlefield Park, and has been here since June 29, 1998. He will be speaking to the Round Table on August 9th about the procedures employed by his rangers to ensure that the various sites that make up the Richmond National Battlefield are efficiently and effectively maintained. Safety, security, and visitor management are all part of the mission his force has been given. With the Civil War Sesquicentennial Commemoration now in full swing, the ongoing work of his force takes on even greater importance. We have asked him to illustrate the challenges he faces with actual experiences he has had on Richmond's extensive battlefields. He intends to limit his prepared remarks to about 30 minutes so that he can open the floor for questions and discussion about the Battlefield. Tim has worked at many National Park Service sites, including Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia, Fort Pulaski National Monument and Chattahoochee National Recreation Area in Georgia, Gulf Islands National Seashore in Florida, and Vicksburg National Military Park in Mississippi. When asked what drew him to the National Park Service Tim had this to say: "I joined the National Park Service for I believe in the mission of preserving and protecting our cultural and natural resources for future generations." Tim was born in Dayton, Ohio on February 23, 1962. He is married to Kitty, a registered nurse and they have three children, Benjamin, Virginia and Meredith. Tim's hobbies are cycling, hiking and traveling. Be sure to come early to get a good seat. Meeting Attendance: June 2011 = 99 NOTE: Please put on your NAME BADGE on when you arrive for the meeting. (They will be on a table near the back or side of the room.)
A Word from Our President August is here. Remember to sign up for a Civil War tour and start a book, if you've not done so. Remember all our fine museums. Next meeting will feature an interesting topic. (see above) Please remember to bring a friend or neighbor. Don't forget those students, not back at school, who could use some more history. David Whitehead, Pres. RCWRT
Interested in Lewis Ginter's war involvement? My new book, Lewis Ginter: Richmond's Gilded Age Icon, will be released in early August 2011. It includes new details about his service and action in the Civil War, which show him to be a highly-devoted Confederate and a true war hero. The book deals extensively with the food shortages that plagued the Confederacy, and how Generals Lee and Jackson fought to remediate the problem. The book also provides a detailed history of the A.P. Hill Monument, which Ginter played a large role in erecting. Thanks, Brian Burns Available locally and here at Barnes & Noble
