Greetings from William Connery
In 2007 we celebrated the 200th birthday of Robert E. Lee. General Lee has come under fire during the recent controversy about the Battle Flag. Does your Camp or Historical Group need a speaker for Robert E. Lee's Birthday or Lee-Jackson Banquet? I am available for speaking on HONORINGPRESIDENT ROBERT E. LEE, celebrating his years as president of Washington College and his work to bind up the wounds of the nation. I also speak on PRESIDENT JOHN TYLER AND THE PEACE CONFERENCE, THE CSS SHENANDOAH AND THE LAST SHOT OF THE CIVIL WAR, and FORT MCHENRY DURING THE WAR.I have talks on two History Press books: CIVIL WAR NORTHERN VIRGINIA 1861 and MOSBY'S RAIDS IN CIVIL WAR NORTHERN VIRGINIA. I was awarded the Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal for my '1861' book, which deals with the start of the War Between the States in Alexandria City, Arlington, Fairfax, Prince William and Loudoun Counties. Fairfax is the birthplace of the Battleflag. My second book deals with the Gray Ghost, Colonel John Singleton Mosby, from his birth in 1833, through his amazing War exploits, until his death in 1916. I CAN BE REACHED AT WILLIAM.CONNERY@VERIZON.NET OR CALL ME AT 703-719-6639.
