Program to be presented at Monocacy National Battlefield on April 20, 2013

2013 marks the 150th anniversary of what some military historians call "Lee's masterpiece," the Battle of Chancellorsville. On April 20, 2013, Monocacy National Battlefield will host Gail Stephens, author of Shadow of Shiloh, to discuss this battle in which General Jubal Early played a critical role.

The 1:30 p.m. program will be held at the historic Thomas House and parking will be located at 4460 Baker Valley Road. The event is free, but due to limited seating, reservations are required. Please call 301-662-3515 for reservations. 

Ms. Stephens is a retired U.S. Department of Defense employee who serves as a volunteer at Monocacy National Battlefield. She lectures on the Civil War, teaches courses on the Civil War at area colleges, and gives battlefield tours.
