Join the Sesquicentennial Book Club to Discuss Master of War: The Life of General George H. Thomas



Join the Sesquicentennial Book Club with the reading of Master of War: The Life of General George H. Thomas by Benson Bobrick. Bobrick is a first rate historian and a master storyteller who argues that General Thomas was the greatest general of the Civil War who was overlooked because he died before he could write his memoir.

The book discussion will be led by Lanita and Steve Boyd at the Fort Thomas branch of the Campbell County public library on Highland Avenue. You can reserve your spot at one of the book discussions or if you have questions by contacting Lanita and Steve Boyd at ThomasBookDiscussions@gmail.com.

This is an advertisement. 
There will be three opportunities to discuss the book at the library: Wednesday, June 28, 7:30 p.m.
Friday, June 30, 1:30 p.m. and Saturday, July 1, 1:30 p.m.

You can buy the book locally at the Blue Marble or check the library. Of course, you can always buy it online.  And don’t worry if you don’t finish or even read it for that matter. Just show up for a lively discussion about the General who many historians think was THE general of the Civil War. Discover why he was called The Rock of Chickamauga, how he never lost a battle, and why the acorn was the symbol associated with him. It’s a fascinating book and will provide an equally fascinating discussion.
