http://brunswick.blogs.starnewsonline.com/12191/famed-military-historian-to-present-at-special-civil-war-roundtable/

Ed Bearss, an award-winning historian who spent more than 40 years with the National Park Service, will present at Wednesday night’s Brunswick Civil War Roundtable.

Bearss, described as a “national treasure” by Roundtable organizers, spent most of his career dedicated to battlefield preservation and interpretation, according to the NPS. His awards include the “Harry S. Truman Award for Meritorious Service in the field of Civil War History” and he has been commended by the Secretary of the Army.

The topic will be the Vicksburg campaign, the battle for the last Confederate fort on the Mississippi River.
