This new museum is facinating and well worth a visit by wargamers during the upcoming Fall-In wargaming convention. It is stuffed full of neat artifacts that are unsual and interesting.
Scott, I’ll look for this when I’m in Gettysburg next April. I’ll be there on a middle/high school trip. Could you contact me at jay.d.arnold AT gmail DOT com, I’d like to get your input on how to guide a tour of the battlefield.
If anyone is going to FALL IN! (http://www.fall-in.org/), there will be a WWII 65th Anniversary Commemoration with a salute to “The Heroes of 1944” on Saturday Nov. 7, 2009. Special Commemoration activities include a presentation by Pat Scanzillo, a veteran of the USS Murphy DD603, who will speak about the incident which sunk the destroyer in 1943. And 88 year-old Jasha Levi, author of The Last Exile, The Tapestry of a Life, will discuss his World War II confinement in Italy under Mussolini, fighting against German troops in Dalmatia in the 40s, and battling Soviet attempts to dominate Yugoslavia.
FALL IN! ’09 War College keynote speaker Ed Ruggero will give a multimedia presentation: “The 82nd Airborne Division in Operation Overlord, June 6-9, 1944.” Ed is co-author of the US Army Field Manual “Army Leadership” and author of several books, including “Duty First: West Point and the Making of American Leaders”, “Combat Jump: The Young Men Who Led the Assault Into Fortress Europe, July 1943”, and “The First Men In: US Paratroopers and the Fight to Save D-Days.” Ed has appeared on The History Channel, the Discovery Channel, CNBC, and Fox and has spoken to audiences around the world on leadership, leader development, and ethics.
