Thanks to the CWFMNY

Just wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone at the Civil War Forum of Metropolitan New York who came out for my talk last night.  One of my first public Civil War presentations was at a Shoney’s near Petersburg back in 2002.  Last night I spoke at Le Sans Culottes on 57th Street.  As I said to my audience last night: “progress.”  Special thanks to Jackie Eberstein for the invitation to speak and for being such a gracious host.  Around 40 people attended.  They asked excellent questions and took a number of books off my hands, which I greatly appreciate.  The highlight of the night was having the chance to talk with three blog readers.  Everyone knows the prolific commenter, but you may also recognize the names of Brad Lewin and Dan Weinfield. They too have also left comments over the years.  We were the last three to leave the restaurant and I want to thank them for making the trip.  It’s always nice to be able to put a face to the comments.

All in all I had a great day in New York City.  Took a nice long walk through Central Park, did a little shopping, and wandered through the New York Historical Society.

    Great meeting you, Pat and Dan and hearing you speak. Better still was the chance to pick up your book. Anybody who hasn’t picked it up should. Enjoying it. Very well written.

    Think you made a few converts. I know I gave the site address to one person.

    Great seeing Brad and Dan last night. Both were fascinating to talk to.

    Your presentation was great. I really recommend that CWRTs and history groups bring you in for a presentation on your book on the Crater.
