President Notes

Happy New Year!  I hope you had a Merry Christmas and enjoyable holiday season.  Julie, Riker, and I took a couple of short trips. Who is Riker, you may ask?  Riker is our 6 month old German Shepherd puppy.  We brought him home at 8 weeks and he has gone with us everywhere since.  We went to Charleston, SC, just before Christmas. The Historic District is such a great place to visit and very dog friendly.  We also went to North Carolina to visit the grandchildren.  I took them fishing (they’d never caught one with their dad) to a fish farm on a warm but wet January 2nd.  Fishing with 6 and 9-year-old boys…and a puppy is…. well, challenging.  After a couple of hours, the boys were soaked from playing in puddles and Riker was a mud ball.  Grandpa caught the only fish.  Maybe next time.

I hope those of you that joined me in December learned from and appreciated Bob Epp’s discussion on Civil War Ancestry genealogy.  I thought his presentation was well done and very informative.  Thank you, Bob. 

Of the many front page photos and captions, this one should really get your attention.  Our guest speaker this month, Father Francis de Rosa, will tell us about Catholics and the Confederacy.  Religion is a subject rarely discussed in our round table programs.  I hope you are as interested in this presentation as I am.

Father de Rosa is the pastor of St. Elizabeth of Hungary Catholic Church in Colonial Beach and St. Anthony Mission in King George.  He has been a priest for 23 years and has served in six parishes in the Diocese of Arlington.  After completing philosophy studies in Rome, Father de Rosa went on for graduate studies in theology at Mount Saint Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, Maryland.  He did further graduate work at the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family in Washington, DC, and earned a Licentiate in Sacred Theology, specializing in bioethics. He has also studied in Mexico and France.

Father de Rosa has lived in the South for almost 25 years.  During these years, he has done much research into the role and place of Catholics and the Catholic Church during the “War Between the States”.

Join me on January 27th at 6 p.m., via Zoom, for our monthly program.  Please let me know if you have not received the meeting invite / Zoom link.  Just send me an email.  If you need assistance gaining access, call me directly at 719-650-8135. 

With the COVID vaccination now in distribution, I am optimistic that we will resume “normal” operations in May.  I will, of course, keep you apprised of any changes.  As I mentioned last month, the Executive Committee has voted to extend the program year through August.  This means two additional programs will be added to our calendar.  Speakers and subject are to be determined. 

If you have not renewed your membership for this year, please do so.  Send the completed invoice (attached) and your payment to: Civil War Round Table of Fredericksburg, P.O. Box 491, Fredericksburg, VA 22404. 

I can’t overemphasize that the Civil War Round of Fredericksburg is your club.  Hardtack is your newsletter.  The officers and Executive Committee serve at your pleasure.  That said, your membership makes our club strong, your participation makes our programs worthwhile, and your contributions make this newsletter interesting.  I need your support.

This presentation can also be viewed live on Facebook and will be recorded for later posting.
