The Army Reorganization After Chancellorsville"

In A Free Live Video Presentation

We are pleased to host Mr. Atkinson on (or almost on) the 158th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg. Bring your questions and join us as Matt Atkinson discusses and answers questions about the reorganization of the Army of Northern Virginia after Chancellorsville.

Matt Atkinson, Gettysburg National Military Park ranger and historian, is a native of Houston, Mississippi - a little town about thirty miles below Tupelo. During the Vicksburg campaign, on April 20, 1863, Colonel Benjamin H. Grierson and his cavalrymen passed through Houston on their way to Starkville, MS - as part of "Grierson's Raid." It was this local connection that first prompted Matt's interest in the Civil War. Mr. Atkinson is a graduate of the University of Mississippi, where he received bachelor's degrees in Business and History. He earned his Masters in History from Louisiana-Monroe. Matt has worked at Petersburg National Battlefield, Natchez National Historical Park, Manassas National Battlefield, Vicksburg National Military Park, and is currently a ranger/historian at Gettysburg National Military Park.

Mr. Atkinson recently scored his dream home - a little log cabin near Gettysburg, Pa. While the Civil War is his passion, his true love is his family. Matt has three children - Ben, age 12, and 'The Ladies' ... Emma and Aubrey, age 6.
