Civil War Roundtable

Civil War Roundup met Jan. 14 at Pearson Hall. Carol Bohl, president, presided.

Jim Beckner led the group with a prayer and the pledge.

Beckner introduced Tim Westcott, history professor, from Park University in Parkville. The topic for the evening was the 1855 pro-slavery convention in Lexington. There were 206 delegates and 12 delegates came from Cass County. A committee of four planned the meeting, but it is unknown who they were, why Lexington was chosen or how the delegates were selected. Westcott is continuing research of this event as little information appears to be available at this time.

Minutes were read for the months of November and December and accepted as presented.

There was no old and new business presented.

John Moloski and Cathy Gottsch plan on providing refreshments for the February meeting.

Next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 11,at Pearson Hall. Bohl will share what she has learned about her great-great grandfather and his experience as a member of the Mosby’s Rangers.

Meeting adjourned.
