Dr. James I. Robertson, Jr. To Speak In Lexington

James Robertson, distinguished Civil War historian, will
speak in Lexington (Virginia) on Tuesday, July 2 at 3:00 p.m. in the Dunlap Auditorium of the Lexington Presbyterian Church (Randolph Street entrance). The event is free and open to the public, sponsored by the Friends of the Rockbridge Regional Library. Dr. Robertson will speak and do a visual presentation on the subject of his most recent book, The Untold Civil War: Exploring the Human Side of War. It features previously undiscovered documents, newly restored photographs, personal mementos, and other items that give a new dimension to our understanding of the Civil War -- even for those who are steeped in the war's history. The presentation will be followed by a reception and book signing; copies of The Untold Civil War will be available for purchase.

Any chance Dr Robertson's remarks will be recorded and posted on the Internet?

Rope - I kinda doubt it, but couldn't say for sure. Though I'm only 30 minutes away, I won't be able to make it either.
