Cleveland Civil War Roundtable Website’s Summer Series

Ulric Dahlgren

The Cleveland Civil War Roundtable typically has its season of meetings from September through May. Meetings are normally not held during the summer months of June, July, and August. In order to fill the summer months of 2022, some articles that were published during the 2021-2022 season in the Roundtable’s newsletter, The Charger, will be posted on the website during the summer months of 2022. Articles, all of which were written by members of the Roundtable, will be posted every week or so during the summer. The fourth installment of the Roundtable website’s summer series is titled A Footnote in Civil War History and was written by Roundtable member Brian D. Kowell. Brian’s article focuses on the amputated leg of Union cavalry officer Ulric Dahlgren. The article can be accessed by clicking on this link.

Previous installments in the Roundtable website’s summer series are as follows.
