West Goshen Historical Commission Lecture Series

October 24, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Join the West Goshen Historical Commission for an evening of Civil War history as we host award winning author and newspaper reporter Bruce E. Mowday., He has published over 15 books on local history, sports, business, and true crime investigations. Mowday was previously the chairman of the Chester County Historical Society and president of the Brandywine Battlefield Park Associates. He is also a frequent speaker at various civic and historic groups.

Learn about Mowday’s latest book, J. Howard Wert’s Gettysburg, during a thrilling lecture about the largest private collection of artifacts from the Battle of Gettysburg. Among the many artifacts in the collection is President Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address podium. During the Battle of Gettysburg, J. Howard Wert served as a spy and scout for the Union Army. He collected artifacts along his travels, including a hot shell that almost hit him on Little Round Top. Learn more about this close encounter and many other fascinating Civil War experiences during our inaugural history lecture.

Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase copies of Mowday’s publications, including his latest book. For more information on Mowday, his books and his schedule of events, visit www.mowday.com.
