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.
