We are now registered for the February program. Is there a reading list for this program?

We visited the Navy Yard to see the SS Hunley (Confederate sub) - Read Raising the Hunley by Brian Hicks. Also, Siege of Charleston. Randy uses it in reference several times during his wk presentation. The class is excellent! My great grandfather was with the 4th MN

I hope I'm not being redundant. I'm looking for others participating in this program. I'm new to the whole system and would love feedback from others about past experiences.

Are you going in May?
Kathy Moes Apr 04, 2013 at 07:16 PM

No, I went in Feb., Beth.

We plan to go in Feb--not signed up yet. I think it will be our 16th program. Judy
