Epping Historical Society
We have been "closed" to the general public since March. However, I now put out the flag on Monday and any visitors must wear masks. I welcome visitors by appointment, all they have to do is call. I had one dedicated volunteer this summer, but she had to return to her job as a teacher. She was a big help with our soon to be website. The website is a learning experience for me, quite a challenge!
I hope by the next issue, we will have news for all of you.
To call for an appointment, call 679-2944; phone number is available 7 days a week.

Due to the Covid-19 crisis, the Civil War Roundtable of NH is holding off meetings until March 2021. We hope to resume meetings in April 2021. Please check back for updates.
Pat Falci, who was scheduled to be part of our 30th Anniversary meeting in May 2021, is tentatively now re-scheduled for September 2021. Other meetings may be changed as well so please check the website periodically for updates.
With the recent national election, we're keeping close watch on House Bill #HR7608 which would remove Confederate Monuments from Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Antietam, and all National Military Parks. The bill passed the House but needs to pass the Senate. The Democrats are looking to remove Confederate Monuments on ALL national park battlefields
November 21, 2020 would have been the annual Remembrance Day at Gettysburg, but all events were canceled. Still, a couple of members of the CWRTNH were on hand to help with some commemorative doings. Liz Hallett hosted a small but poignant ceremony with Robert Hodgman, Aileen Kelly, and Bill Hallett. The day before, this same group flagged the graves of ALL New England men buried at the Soldiers National Cemetery at Gettysburg.
