This Month's Speaker
Join us for the next meeting of the Williamsburg Civil War Roundtable
at the Williamsburg Public Library Theatre at 7 PM on Tuesday,
April 25, 2017. Ernie Price will present "Marching Out of Formation
- Confederates Going Home After Appomattox".
After surrendering their arms on April 12, the soldiers of the Army of Northern Virginia began their individual journeys home with their paroles and little more than the remembrance of General Lee’s poignant farewell address.
Ernie Price will tell the rest of the story about the journey of the soldiers as they left Appomattox. (Keep in mind, as you read this announcement and when you attend the meeting on April 25, that the many if not most of the soldiers were still making their way home on these particular dates 152 years ago.) Ernie Price is the Chief of Visitor Services and Education at the Appomattox Court House National Historical Park. After earning an undergraduate degree in history at Longwood College and a Masters of education at Lynchburg College, Ernie joined the National Park service in 1997. He has been at the Appomattox location since 2008.
Winner of the 2017 scholarship essay is Kyle Mastracci from York High School. (view essay)
