LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

Our January meeting once again demonstrated that we are making a difference in our approach to learn- ing about the history of America’s Civil War. Mem- bers Nathan Burkan, Lou McElwee, and Paul Windels offered thoughtful, well-researched views on vari- ous “What ifs” of the Civil War. Even better was the thought-provoking Question and Answer discussion. It all sent home to all the point that we are a member-driven organization of people who love the study of history and enjoy the opportunity to join people of like interest in a once-a-month social and educational gathering.

If you have an idea for a meeting or would like to make a presentation, please contact Jackie Eberstein at jeberstein@controlcarb.com. If you have some thoughts on how to make our Forum a more enjoyable member experience, please let me know at DavidMKinard@aol.com.

To keep our club the vibrant, fun place it is, we need to have a constant stream of new members! I ask each of you to consider inviting one of your history buff friends (not necessarily Civil War) to come to a meeting as your guest. I will then ask all of our members to charm them into joining our Club. We do need everyone’s help to get new people interested. Fortunately, with it being the sesquicentennial of the war we will be getting a lot of free publicity, but we need all of you to jump on this opportunity.

CWFMNY TOUR NEWS:

Our second annual battlefield tour explores battles of 1862 in the Shenendoah Valley. It is scheduled for Thursday, May 19–Sunday, May 22. With the able guidance of Frank O’Reilly, we will be “witnessing” the battles of Winchester, Front Royal, Kernstown, McDowell, Port Republic, and Cross Keys. (There might be a few surprises, too!)

The 4-day, all-inclusive tour promises to be outstanding in terms both of history and amenities. The cost, which depends upon having as many Forum members and their friends as possible attending, will be in the $700–$750 range.

Please reserve your place on the tour as soon as possible. All you have to do is send a $100 deposit, made out to the C.W.F.M.N.Y., to Phyllis and Howard Rosenthal, 81-15 Surrey Place, Jamaica, N.Y. 11432. Any questions, see us at the meeting or call us for additional information at 718-591-2950. Hurry, as the cut-off date for reserving to participate in this event is March 21, 2011.
