Speaker will present Civil War history lesson

Attorney Maurile Tremblay will discuss the turning point of the American Civil War, 6 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 9 as the next guest of The Distinguished Speaker Series at La Jolla Community Center, 6811 La Jolla Blvd.

Tremblay’s talk will include an illustrated presentation on the careers of generals Robert E. Lee and Ulysses Grant.

Tremblay has been an avid student of the Civil War, since his boyhood days when he visited the battlefield at Manassas, Va., where the first major battle of the Civil War was fought, the Battle of Bull Run. Over the years, he has walked the grounds of several other Civil War sites and National Battlefield Parks, including those at Charleston, S.C.; Cold Harbor, Va.; Gettysburg Pa.; and sites in Mississippi. He is also the author of a fictional short story with a Civil War setting that was recently published in San Diego Lawyer magazine.
