May Meeting

On May 7th, Drew Gruber will present "Williamsburg -A Forgotten Civil War Battle" The Battle of Williamsburg, fought on May 5, 1862, was the first major battle in the year of 1862 between the Union Army of the Potomac and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. The battle occurred as Union forces launched attacks against the rear guard of Confederate forces who were withdrawing toward Richmond from defensive lines on the lower Peninsula. Approximately 41,000 Federals and 32,000 Confederates were engaged in the fight which resulted in the significant loss of 2,300 Federal and 1,700 Confederate casualties. On the following day, the Confederates continued their westward march.   By virtue of the subsequent battles around the Richmond area in the following month, the Battle of Williamsburg lost its true relevance as a major engagement and seemed to fade from memory. By contrast, the First battle of Bull Run, fought in July of the preceding year, saw a similarity in forces engaged and casualties, but was afforded great significense by the participants, the press, and those who endeavored to detail the history of that engagement.
