James Fritsch will present “Scattered Bones: A Union Regiment Cares For Its Dead!!” Everyone is welcome. There is no admission charge.

James Fritsch, a fellow Scottsdale resident, devoted fifteen years to researching his first book “The Untried Life: The Twenty-Ninth Ohio Volunteer Infantry in the Civil War.” Historians have called his book the most complete study of the life and times of a Union volunteer infantry regiment ever published. Having been interviewed on National Public Radio as well as key note speaker to several well received talks on a variety of Civil War topics covered in the book from the evolution of medical treatment in the war, to Gettysburg as the soldiers who fought on the right knew it, and most everything in between, this meeting will be one not to miss.
