Fought on September 17th, 1862, before the technology of television cameras and recordings allowed an event to be captured for posterity, it was up to those who fought there, seated years later at their kitchen table or library desk, to describe the event in their own words. In this presentation, Robert has joined images of the battle, contemporary and afterwards, with selected quotations from those men, and from one woman. The audience will assume the identity of one of those persons, and read from a slip of paper handed out at the beginning, what their surviving veteran wrote. Audiences always come away with a very changed perception of the battle, and Civil War battle in general.
