Wanted ... Read or Alive
Guidon Books is pleased to present a monthly discussion group on Civil War topics. There are no fees or dues, just a willingness to read and discuss the monthly topic in a friendly setting. Meeting location is Guidon Books, 7109 E. 2nd Street, downtown Scottsdale @ 6:30 pm
The Civil War Discussion Group is ready for the Fall. We are changing the meeting dates to follow the Scottsdale Civil War Round Table Speakers and our topics will tend to follow the presentations.
April 24 - Bill Spoehr
The Union's "way of war" changed over the 4 years of the Civil War from a conciliation approach to "hard war." Our discussion will consider the phases and time frames of the Union approach to the war and the impact of various factors on the methods used by Union armies in defeating the rebellion.
Please stop by for a visit.
