Next Meeting: Thursday, November 14, 2013
6:30 PM, North Berkeley Public Library
Next Thursday, November 14, 2013 author George F. Franks III will speak on his new book: “Battle of Falling Waters 1863: Custer, Pettigrew and the End of the Gettysburg Campaign”. The presentation will start at 6:30pm at the North Berkeley Public Library. Most historians agree that the Gettysburg Campaign concluded with the Battle of Falling Waters, Maryland. Although not the climactic battle of the war desired by Abraham Lincoln, it remains a story of miscalculation, bravery, larger-than-life personalities, tragedy and a cover-up. Copies of this new book will be available for purchase, and a book signing will follow the presentation. For information or directions, please call (304) 263-7242 or visit the website at http://www.battleoffallingwaters.com/.
Please note that this month the FWBA will be meeting at 6:30PM at the North Berkeley Public Library, 1255 T.J. Jackson Drive, Falling Waters, WV. Just across I-81 from the Spring Mills Wal Mart.

For the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the West Virginia Division of Tourism has created the website “The Child of the Rebellion” covering the Civil War in West Virginia. In it are nine regional videos covering specific areas of the state. This website is very informative and well done. Note that the Battle of Falling Waters is called Hoke’s Run in the Eastern Panhandle video. Although it is aimed to promote tourism, this website contains a tremendous amount of information. Here is the link: http://wvtourism.com/minisites/civilwar.aspx
In addition the new West Virginia Civil War Trails brochure is available on the West Virginia Tourism website to be viewed or downloaded.
