Civil War Round Table

to meet Aug. 7

BOALSBURG — The Civil War Round Table will meet on Aug. 7 at 7 p.m. at The PA Military Museum auditorium, 51 Boal Ave., in Boalsburg.

Craig Caba will speak on “The Treasures of Gettysburg from the J. Howard Wert Collection.” Union Lieutenant, J. Howard Wert, served as a special scout and special guide during the Civil War. A strong abolitionist and Underground Railroad conductor, Wert amassed a treasure of letters and articles that is now the largest private military collection in the country.

As a 10-year old youth, Craig Caba was a 1959 charter member and later President of the Harrisburg Civil War Round Table and the Gettysburg Battlefield Preservation Association (GBPA), with which he has been involved continuously.

For over 50 years Caba has presented lectures to Civil War Round Tables and is the author of numerous books on Gettysburg, the Civil War and the Underground Railroad. His latest book is J. Howard Wert’s Gettysburg: A Collection of Relics from the Civil War Battle, complete with illustrations of rare memorabilia gathered by Professor Wert as the evidence of history.

All members and anyone interested in joining the Central PA Civil War Round Table are encouraged to attend.
