Spring 2014 Seminar: Battle of Monocacy - The Third Invasion of the North
April 11-12, 2014
The Association of Licensed Battlefield Guides, Inc. announces
the 2014 edition of its popular spring single-topic seminar
program this coming year will focus on the near-by and little known
Battle of Monocacy near Frederick, Maryland. A recent book on
Gettysburg is titled, inaccurately "The Last Invasion" yet a year after
yet another Confederate army poured through the Shenandoah Valley
and into Maryland making it to the outskirts of Washington, D.C.
The one-day Battle of Monocacy had a great impact on the
outcome of the true "Last Invasion."
As with all our spring seminars the registration fee includes a Friday night
presentation, followed by Saturday’s all-day program in the field. In
to detailed tours and presentations by expert Licensed Battlefield
will receive transportation, maps and materials, lunch and refreshments.
(Note: This seminar will
involve significant walking over occasionally difficult terrain).
Friday evening, April 11:
will meet at the GAR Hall on East Middle Street for light refreshments
followed by LBG Jim Hueting opening the seminar with a presentation on
the famed "Lost Orders" Special Orders #191. The location of this
episode has long been thought to be somewhere on or near the current
Monocacy National Park. Jim will present the results of his
year's of research on this topic..
wil depart from the old Wax Museum parking lot at 8:15 a.m. and will
meet with LBG Rich Kohr and LBG Jim Hueting as we travel by van to
