Our upcoming bi-monthly community meeting promises to be a very interesting one. Woodside Park resident and historian Dr. Robert Oshel will discuss his latest book, Silver Spring and the Civil War, Monday, July 20, at 7:00 PM at the Schweinhaut Senior Center.
Dr. Oshel’s illustrated presentation, complete with photos and maps, will draw upon contemporary accounts and memoirs. He will recount for us the tumultuous period culminating in July 1864 when Confederate troops, under the command of General Jubal Early, spread across the fields and orchards of Silver Spring on their way to invade Washington, DC.
It’s a rich historical perspective of our community’s past you won’t want to miss. And, not to neglect our community’s present, updates and Association business will follow the presentation.
