Presented by Dr. Steven Woodworth, Professor, TCU

Location - UNT Health Science Center, Medical Education and Training Bldg., 1000 Montgomery Street, Fort Worth, TX 76107

Dinner - 6PM Program - 7PM



Most people who visit the Gettysburg battlefield with a serious interest in the Civil War visit Little Round Top. Most people who visit Little Round Top notice the castle-like monument near the south end of the summit. That monument commemorates 44th New York Volunteers, an interesting regiment with quite a story behind it before it arrived at Gettysburg. There it was part of Strong Vincent's brigade, rushed to Little Round Top to hold the hill against the advance of Hood's Texans and Law's Alabama brigade. Vincent's left-flank regiment, the 20th Maine, gained well earned fame. The 44th New York, held the center against the onslaught of the 5th Texas Regiment, and its story is also worth telling.

Dinner on September 13th will be Pecan Crusted Chicken, Mashed New Potatoes, Garden Salad and Dessert. The cost is $13 per person payable by check or cash at the door. We do need a count of meals for the caterer. So please respond to Jim Rosenthal by email, phone call (cell 817-307-9263) or text to RSVP. As always, if you do not plan on eating dinner, you are welcome to attend the program starting at 7PM.

Steve Woodworth is an excellent presenter and always interesting, articulate and informative. This should be a great program and an excellent way to start off the new season. Don't miss it!
