If not for this (expletive deleted) virus, the Civil War Round Table of Gettysburg would be spending its annual summer on the battlefield.
I had been particularly looking forward to walking Culp’s Hill with Licensed Battlefield Guide Richard Goedkoop. Culp’s Hill figures heavily in the round table summer schedule. On Aug. 27 (a fourth Thursday, our group has been meeting on the fourth Thursday since 1957), LBG Charlie Fennell is to lead us through the Culp’s Hill battle action; Dr. Goedkoop was to focus on the monuments. Happily, Richard was kind enough to revamp his program for a very effective online presentation. He had announced his theme months ago, having fresh relevance in this summer of American discontent: “What Mean These Stones?”
