Topic: “Haversacks, Hardtack, and Unserviceable Mules; the Civil War Journey of a Union Quartermaster in Tennessee.”

Our speaker this month is Dr. Nancy McEntee, historian, author, pilot, U.S. Marine Corps veteran and more.

Quartermaster Captain Webster Colburn struggled to hold on to his humane and merciful character while surrounded by death and disgust. As an officer in the Army of the Cumberland, Colburn served in Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Kentucky.

Drawn from her book on Quartermaster Captain Webster Colburn, she will speak about how he struggled to hold on to his humane and merciful character while surrounded by death and disgust. He was responsible for moving supplies, securing horses and mules and the removal of Union dead for shipment home during the war Dr. McEntee will have her book for sale at the meeting.

We hope you can join us for this interesting meeting.
