Ed Bearss - Chicago Civil War Round Table Tour
Legendary Civil War Historian Ed Bearss conducted a tour of the Atlanta Campaign for the Chicago Civil War Round Table in May. There was great participation. Several FORB members on hand to assist with the portion of the tour regarding the Battle of Resaca.
After the tour, the Friends of Resaca Battlefield, Inc. recieved an "Ed Bearss Award" from the Round Table. Our preservationist organization was honored to assist and we are very proud to be reconized in this fashion.
Here are some photos from the tour...
