This Month's Speaker

Join us for the next meeting of the Williamsburg Civil War Roundtable at the Williamsburg Public Library Theatre at 7 PM on Tuesday evening, October 25, 2016 for Rob Orrison - "Lee's Last Offensive - The Bristoe Campaign". The events in October 1863 led the Army of Northern Virginia back to the doorstep of Washington, DC and left a frustrated Lincoln looking for new military leadership. Historian Rob Orrison will discuss the events surrounding the Bristoe Campaign and put it into the context of the overall strategic situation in Virginia.

A native Virginian, Rob Orrison received his B.A. in Historic Preservation at Longwood College and his M.A. in Public History from George Mason University. He now serves as the Historic Site Operations Supervisor for Prince William County. He also leads tours with Civil War Excursion Tours, which he co-founded, and he’s co-author of A Want of Vigilance: The Bristoe Station Campaign (Savas Beatie, 2015) and A Long Road North: A Guide to the Gettysburg Campaign (Savas Beatie, 2016).
