Peter Carmichael will be meeting with the Tattooed Historian at the Garryowen Pub in Gettysburg. Details from the Tattooed Historian:

It's a special treat to say that Dr. Peter Carmichael will be our presenter at the February installment of "The Tattooed Historian Presents." Dr. Carmichael will be discussing his newest book, "The War for the Common Soldier." This will be a more interactive program than the others. I will be sitting down with Dr. Carmichael and discussing his latest work, and we'll be having a heavier Q&A segment for the audience. We may have handouts too!

Please make sure you mark this down as the Tuesday date. We usually do Thursdays so don't miss this one! Totally free and open to the public!

We will start at our normal time, 7:00 pm, upstairs at the Garryowen. Remember, you can order your food and drinks in our area since we have a bartender!

Also, as always, if you can't be there physically, I will be live streaming the discussion right here on Facebook!
