In what is to be a paradox of purposes, the final at the beginning, Derrick Brown of the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources will address the WNCCWRT’s inaugural meeting about the present day consequences of North Carolina’s last battle.
Brown, whose day job is Assistant Site Manager at Bentonville, will make a presentation of “A Monumental Mystery: The Battle of Bentonville and its Lost Confederates Soldiers” on March 14, 7pm at Western Carolina University HFR Auditorium.
The preliminaries events for his visit begin with the meet ‘n greet with a casual dinner at Bogarts in Sylva, 5 pm. This will be followed with a light refreshment social at HFR Auditorium, 6:30 pm. We look forward to seeing all there and as always admission is gratis.
