President's Message We hope that you'll join us at the December meeting. We are looking forward to a very interesting talk by Andy Talkov of the Virginia Historical Society. In accordance with the Round Table's Constitution, we will hold a short business meeting at the start of the evening. Secretary Sandy Parker will provide an update on our current membership and Treasurer Richard Grosse will report on our current financial status as we close out this calendar year. Immediately following these two important reports, we will hold our annual election of officers for 2013. The Executive Committee has developed a slate of officers for your review and approval. The slate includes: President-Brent Morgan; 1st VP-Bruce Venter: 2nd VP-Bert Dunkerly; Secretary-Sandy Parker; Treasurer-Richard Grosse; Newsletter Editor and Webmaster-Gary Cowardin. The immediate Past President and three former Round Table Presidents to be selected by the general membership will make up the remainder of the Executive Committee for the coming year. Any other nominations are welcome. Finally, I'd like to say what an honor and a genuine pleasure it has been to serve as an officer of the Richmond Civil War Round Table for the past three years. I very much appreciate all of the support so generously provided by the members of this great organization. I know that we'll certainly be in very good hands in the future! Jack Mountcastle
Great Holiday Gift! We will have available for purchase copies of J. Ambler Johnston's wonderful history entitled Echoes of 1861-1961 that he prepared for the Richmond Civil War Round Table. The edition we'll have at the December meeting is nicely bound and contains a wealth of information about the development of the Richmond National Battlefield, the work of Douglas Southall Freeman to establish Richmond's historical markers, visits by dignitaries to Richmond's battlefields, interviews, and a number of very interesting appendices. This would make an excellent holiday gift for friends, family -- or for yourself!! ($20.00 for Round Table members.)
