What a delightful surprise on March 5th, when we learned as arrived at our Civil War Round Table meeting, that our own Ed Root would be the last minute replacement for Ted Alexander, who was unable to attend.
Ed spoke on his 2006 book “Isn’t This Glorious!” which he co-authored with Jeffrey Stocker concerning three Massachusetts Regiments which fought at Gettysburg near the copse of trees.
He told the story of the 15th, 19th, and 20th Volunteer Infantry Regiments from that commonwealth, some of their personnel, and their history of following the war and their attempts to place markers at the site of their rush to fill in the gap in the bulging Union line.
It was an informative and “glorious” presentation. Thank you, Ed!
