Our big fund raising event featuring the one and only Ed Bearss is almost here. The event is Monday, July 16 at the Looby Theater/Library on Rosa Parks Blvd in Metro Center.
This is a two tiered event. Beginning at 5 PM there will be a meet and greet with Ed at the Looby Theater for members of the Battle of Nashville Preservation Society and dues paid members of the Nashville CWRT.
Ed will then begin his program at 7 PM and he will be speaking about Gen. George H. Thomas Versus Gen. U.S. Grant and their command relationship in the Tennessee Campaign of 1864. If you have heard Ed before you know this will be a great evening – and if not then you are in for a treat!
If you wish to get current with your dues please send a check to Philip Duer, 530 Church St., Ste. 400, Nashville, TN 37219. Make the check out to the Nashville CWRT. The dues rates are as follows:
Single membership – $20

The fee for the Ed Bearss lecture event (not the meet and greet) for non-current members will be $10 and the proceeds are going to be shared with BONPS and our fundraising for the Tennessee Monument to be built at the Battle of Richmond, Kentucky.
