The Gathering of the Civil War Egales is an interactive “first-person” educational seminar hosted by 50 members of “Lee’s Lieutenants” and the “Federal Generals Corps.” This is a phenomenon far beyond any other Civil War educational opportunity. The thoughts, emotions and experiences of battle-hardened Generals, who felt the brunt of the war, will be shared with spectators.
Suppose the War Between the States was over; the principal Commanders and both Presidents survived and all were gathered together for a round of discussions regarding the contest. Now suppose you had the opportunity to be at this “gathering” in the form of a representative of the press; able to ask questions of these knowledgeable individuals.
“A Gathering of Civil War Eagles” offers just such an opportunity. The nation’s most prominent impressionists of Lincoln, Grant, Custer, Davis, Lee, Stuart and many others engage in debates throughout the weekend and offer themselves to you for those questions you’ve always wanted to ask.
Held on June 7th and 8th in the original 1840’s Winchester Virginia Courthouse in beautifully restored downtown Winchester, you will be transported back in time.
