Round Table Audience Enjoys Thomas Presentation

February 8, 2013 - Southport, NC - A most interesting topic and a sense of humor captivated the near capacity audience of 260, including 94 women, at the Brunswick Civil War Round Table meeting held on Tuesday, February 5th.

On hand was guest speaker Emory Thomas, Regents Professor of History Emeritus at the University of Georgia, history professor at three universities and author of numerous books and articles, primarily concerning the Civil War. His topic was, “The Dogs of War: The Martial Moment, 1861.” Prior to the start of the war, both the North and the South believed if there was going to be a war it would be short lived. Neither side could possibly imagine the eventual outcome when after a four year battle over seven hundred thousand lives were lost.

Round Table meetings are usually held on the first Tuesday of the month at Trinity United Methodist Church in Southport. Every meeting features a renowned Civil War historian. Everyone is always welcome. The guest fee is $5 and can be applied toward the $25 annual membership dues.
