Book Talk with Doug Crenshaw

Sunday, October 8, 2017

Join us for a free book talk with Doug Crenshaw on his book "Richmond Shall Not Be Given Up" at 1:30 p.m. About the Book: For seven days, Lee planned ambitious attacks and launched them, one after another, hoping not just to drive Federals from the gates of Richmond but to obliterate them entirely. In "Richmond Shall Not Be Given Up", historian Doug Crenshaw follows a battle so desperate that, ever-after, soldiers would remember that week simply as The Seven Days. McClellan reeled. The tide of war turned. The Army of Northern Virginia was born. About the Author: Doug Crenshaw is a volunteer historic interpreter for the Richmond National Battlefield Park. A member of the Richmond Civil War Roundtable, he is a speaker, presenter, tour leader, and the author of books on Glendale and Fort Harrison. Doug is a descendant of the Sydnor family, which lived at Beaver Damn Creek during that battle, and the Binford family, which live behind the Malvern Hill battlefield.
