HFA Reunion at Gettysburg, PA
June 17-18, 2011.
The reunion began on Friday evening with a social hour followed by dinner at the Gettysburg Hotel. Tom Haskell gave an after-dinner talk on "Nine Brothers - Seven Served in the Civil War." You can download the slides for this talk as a pdf file here. On Saturday morning, we boarded a bus for a Haskell-oriented tour of the battlefield, led by our guide, Ed Guy. Everyone received a handout that showed a map of the battlefield together with a list of all Haskells who fought at Gettysburg. The tour of the Soldiers' National Cemetery and battlefield was outstanding. Following an afternoon of free time, we met at the Inn at Herr Ridge for a business meeting and farewell dinner. At the after-dinner raffle, Jane Haskell won the autographed book, The Civil War by Ken Burns. Another very successful Haskell reunion!
