    The April 10th, 2014 meeting of the California University of Pennsylvania Civil War Roundtable will be held in the KARA-BOOKER GREAT ROOM in the Kara Alumni House. Doors will open at 6:30pm and the meeting will start at 7:00pm.

     

    Mr. Len Barcousky, a Post-Gazette reporter, will be speaking on the topic of his new book titled “Civil War Pittsburgh: Forge of the Union.” In his book as well as his bi-weekly “Eyewitness” columns, Mr. Barcousky writes about life in Southwestern Pennsylvania during the War Between the States.

    He describes how he uses next-day reports in local newspapers to craft his stories and tales of forgotten people and places. They include the 1863 attacks by Confederate sympathizers on Union cavalry at Burgettstown, WV and Washington, PA.
