The last legs of the great Push the Cush speaking tour–the last legs that have been scheduled, anyway–were held last week. On November 1st, I spoke before the Civil War Roundtable of Eastern Pennsylvania, an attentive and dedicated group of Civil War buffs (and why not? Some of the best parts came in their back yard!) in Allentown PA and Lloyd NY. ) The following Monday, I was up near Poughkeepsie, where I spoke before the Town of Lloyd Historical Society. Another large and appreciative group, and why not? Cushing’s story is a great yarn. Thanks to Bob McHugh and Vivian Yadlin and everyone else for your help in booking me and helping to make arrangements.
