Puget Sound Civil War Roundtable Meeting

Upcoming PSCWRT Meeting

October 11, 2018
The renown writer and historian, Walter Stahr returns to Seattle to tell the story of his latest book – Stanton: Lincoln’s War Secretary. Stahr captures the essence of the controversial Edwin M. Stanton who, while a staunch Democrat, revered the Republican Lincoln and supported the war effort with all his considerable talents.

Stanton was at the epicenter of the Andrew Johnson impeachment as he sought to advance the cause of freedmen during the dark days of the Lincoln assassination and reconstruction.  This will likely be the most influential discussion of the season.

Mr. Stahr is also the author of Seward: Lincoln’s Indispensable Man and John Jay: Founding Father. Mr. Stahr practiced international law for 25 years, including seven in Hong Kong and five with the SEC.

Social hour begins at 6:00 pm, Dinner at 6:45 pm, and program at 8:00 pm.  Click the button below to make a reservation. Students may attend free without a dinner.
