Oct. 26, 2017 – 7:00PM – discussion – Dr. Chris Mackowski,  (NOTE: This meeting will be held at the Gateway Building, 3555 Lakeshore Road, Blasdell, NY 14219)


“Fellow Civil War Enthusiasts!!
I am writing this very special note to inform ALL such WNY’ers of our next BCWRT meeting at the end of the month. There is to be a very big change! Possibly for the first time, we are going to have an open
DISCUSSION, rather than a “talk.” Our scheduled speaker, Chris Mackowski, from St. Bonaventure Univ., will guide us through something very interesting for ALL of us: the current controversy over the Confederate flags/statues!!
This has been a matter on my mind all year, & I feel it is high-time for the Round Table to devote an evening to this. I hope the many people in our area that may feel the need to have their voices heard …. will want to do just that!
As an extra “bonus,” Chris will present thoughts & views from recent southern trips. I am sure he will have many insights that will be quite interesting.
The meeting will take place at the Gateway Bldg (formerly the Bethlehem Steel Bldg) in Hamburg across from the Ford plant starting at 7:00pm, Thursday the 26th. The RT will be asking $5 for non-members, but will wave that should you decide you would like to join our wonderful group.
With all the attention this has received over the course of the year, I feel, we, the Buffalo Civil War Round Table, should lend a …. ”voice.” And YOURS would be certainly appreciated!
Hope to see you there,
Carl Modica
Buffalo Civil War Round Table”
