Bonnie, and others living in the western New York area,

Our Genesee Valley Civil War Roundtable meets the third Wednesday of every
month, September through June, in Le Roy. We have a program of speakers
usually booked two years in advance (but subject to change). Anyone
interested in the list of topics can e-mail me directly and I'll e-mail
back with the schedule so far.

Speaking of Civil War women, I picked up a used copy of Nurse and Spy in
the Union Army: The Adventures and Experiences of a Woman in Hospitals,
Camps and Battle-Fields (1865), by S. Emma E. Edmonds.

I was rather delighted when I mentioned it to someone else researching the
ACW and was told that modern day investigations prove that Ms. Edmonds had
an extremely vivid imagination. Okay, she was a fraud. Should make it even
more fun. Most of us love rascalesses (as well as their male counterparts).
Might make an interesting article for someone to write.
