November 2010 Program John Quarstein Fort Monroe: The Key to the South Anual RCWRT Dinner Meeting Same location as the last 2 years. 6:00 p.m., Thursday, November 11, 2010, at the University of Richmond's Jepson Alumni Center Fort Monroe is the largest moat-encircled stone fortification in North America and is the only pre-war Federal fort in Virginia to remain under Union control throughout the war. Consequently, it became the base for every major amphibious operation as well as witnessed numerous firsts during the war. The Contraband of War decision, first land battle, first balloon flights, and first battle of the ironclads all occurred because Fort Monroe was a Union bastion within the Confederacy. On Thursday, November 11, the RCWRT's 2009 annual dinner will be held once again at the University of Richmond's Jepson Alumni Center. We are pleased to have as our speaker the historian John Quarstein speaking on Fort Monroe and its future. The evening begins with a reception at 6:00 pm. Dinner is at 7:00 with our speaker to follow. The cost is the same as last year, members and spouses (dates), $40 per person. The cost for guests (non RCWRT members & spouses) will be $45 per person. Beer, wine or liquor are on a cash basis at $5 each. There is no charge for soft drinks. Due to the reputation of our speaker, we expect to have a significant number of guests; therefore members are encouraged to get their reservations in early. This year we will have a buffet.
