“A Thousand May Fall,” is the tale of an ethnically German regiment from northeastern Ohio. The unit found the thick of the killing at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, only to be transferred to the war’s margins in late 1863. Through its two years and ten months of service, the 107th Ohio battled a host of enemies: Confederates at the front and Copperheads back home; boredom, chronic disease, and harsh environments; a hostile press, incompetent officers, and suffocating self-doubt. Keeping body, mind, and soul together was a not insignificant challenge for these men, who illuminate for us today deep truths about the realities of Civil War soldiering.
At the end of last season, I asked several of our most popular speakers for recommendations for this year. At the top of the list was Dr. Brian Jordan, Associate Professor and Chair of the History Department at Sam Houston State University. He is the author of six books and more than 150 reviews, articles and essays. He currently serves as Book Review Editor of The Civil War Monitor. He is a frequent speaker at History conferences and has addressed Civil War Round Tables in twenty-five states.
We are excited to have Brian as our speaker for April. This should be a good one! Don’t miss it!
