The meeting begins at 7:00pm and is always open to the public.

Our Speaker and Topic – “Of Monuments and Remembrance – Veteran Commemoration and the Monuments of Shiloh.”

Shiloh National Military Park, established in 1894 as the nation’s second federally preserved battlefield park, proves an excellent example for demonstrating the evolution of post-Civil War veteran commemoration through each successive generation of how the war was interpreted after the events of 1861-1865.

In this month’s presentation, Fort Donelson National Battlefield Superintendent Brian McCutchen intends to show examples of the more than 150 monuments that dot the 5,000-plus acre battlefield, and how they demonstrate transition of interpretation and legend about specifics such as battle activities, landscape, battle or war cause/purpose, and event outcomes by the generations since.

Brian McCutchen has served as superintendent of Fort Donelson National Battlefield since the fall of 2012. Since beginning his career in 1992 at Shiloh, he has served in the positions as park ranger, park historian, regional historian, and superintendent of three separate national park units – including Donelson.

He holds under grad and graduate degrees in historic preservation from Southeast Missouri State University, with much of his graduate studies – and into his career – focused on largely on battlefield assessment and restoration and cemetery and monument interpretation and conservation.
