Confederate Memorial Hall, June 26, 2010

Made my first public speaking about the Adams-Gibson Louisiana Brigade on June 26th in New Orleans at Confederate Memorial Hall. Really enjoyed visiting with the staff, being able to take my time and look around (which I haven't been able to do in years). Attempting to cover the entire book and all of its various battles, topics, etc. I kept the focus of the topic on how the book came about; the politics of command between Randall Gibson, Daniel Adams and Braxton Bragg; and attempted to go into some depth on the 20 images that Memorial Hall allowed me to use in Louisianians in the Western Confederacy. Complimenting several of the images being discussed was their display in the cases adjacent to the audience. The night went very well and my thanks to Memorial Hall for having me as their guest.
