On September 8th . . . Joshua Chamberlain’s 194th birthday . . . the 2022-2023 program season got off to a great start at the Morrell Room, Curtis Memorial Library! It was good to see a lot of old and new round table friends after what we hope was an enjoyable summer. Historian Victor Vignola treated us to a lively and informative program addressing the battles at Seven Pines and Fair Oaks (May 31 – June 1, 1862) with a view toward the “contrasts of command” that the battles revealed. Victor’s presentation was very well received, he fielded a lot of questions, and we can look forward to his book on the same subject that is due to be published in 2023.
