Civil War Round Table Congress

names author Bruce E. Mowday

as a “5-Star” speaker

Mowday listed on Congress website with other national speakers

          DOWNINGTOWN _ Author Bruce E. Mowday has been listed as a “5-Star” speaker on the Civil War by the Civil War Round Table Congress.

Mowday and other national speakers on the Civil War are identified as resources for Civil War Round Tables. Mowday was notified of the selection by Mike Movius of the Civil War Round Table Congress on Sunday.

“The nomination and subsequent listing is quite an honor,” Mowday, the founding vice president of the Brandywine Valley Civil War Round Table, said. “The round tables play an important role in keeping our nation’s heritage and history alive. I’ve spoken at a number of the organizations and always enjoy the interactions with those interested in our history. I thank the Bucks County round table for the nomination.”

Mowday has written three books on the Civil War. They are Pickett’s Charge: The Untold Story published by Barricade Books; J. Howard Wert’s Gettysburg published by Schiffer Publishing and Unlikely Allies: Fort Delaware’s Prison Community in the Civil War.

The Pickett’s charge book is the first one written from the Union perspective on the engagement at Gettysburg. Wert was a spy and scout for General George G. Meade at Gettysburg. The book also details the largest private collection of Gettysburg artifacts, including the podium used by President Abraham Lincoln during his Gettysburg address. The Fort Delaware book was the first history of the Union prisoner of war camp.

A fourth book on the Civil War, Emotional Gettysburg, is pending publication. Mowday’s essays are twinned with original art work by noted artist Karl Kuerner.

Mowday has 20 books published on history, true crime, sports and business. His next book, Stealing Wyeth, is due to be released in August by Barricade Books. For all of Mowday’s books, see www.mowday.com. To order signed copies of his books or to schedule a talk, contact Mowday at mowday@mowday.com.
