May 25, 2016 Meeting


Will Hutchison,


"The Marines at Harper's Ferry"



Will Hutchison, U.S. Marines and Army retired, provided leadership for a preeminent Civil War living history unit at Harper's Ferry National Historic Park.

In October 2009, at Harpers Ferry, Will portrayed a Marine officer leading the U.S. Marines who assaulted the Armory Engine House and captured the Abolitionist John Brown. Will also provided research, recruitment, authentic weapons, uniforms and training for the company.

For many years, Will has been instrumental in developing

the U.S. Marine Corps Historical Company. A company of

active and retired marines, equipped, accoutered and armed with appropriate uniforms, they portray marines of the past to educate the public about the role of the Marine Corps in American History.



Will Hutchison is the award-winning author of the fictional Ian Carlyle series. He is considered a military history authority, and has collaborated on historical films and major historical events. Will is a sought-after international lecturer on the American Civil War and the Crimean War and an exhibitor of his own fine art photography. Outside his professional and writing interests, he is actively involved with the United States Marine Corps Historical Company, many American Civil War historical organizations, and the Crimean War Research Society.

Allen Mesch,


"Teacher of Civil War Generals"

From the training field at West Point to the entrenchments at Fort Donelson, Charles Ferguson Smith was the soldier's soldier. The call of duty was a magic sound for which he was always ready to make every sacrifice. He was the very model of a soldier, calm, prudent, self-poised, and bold. During his nearly forty-two year military career, these qualities earned him the respect and admiration of his peers. As both a teacher and role model, he influenced army officers who became generals during the Civil War. However, his story is more than an account of battles fought and victories won. Through his correspondence, we discover a man who combined the qualities of a faithful officer, an excellent disciplinarian, an able commander, and a modest, courteous gentleman.


ALLEN MESCH is an author, educator, and historian. Allen teaches classes on the Civil War at Collin College. He has visited over 132 Civil War sites and shares his over 4,000 photographs through his web site Civil War Journeys (http://www.civil-war-journeys.org). Mr. Mesch writes a Civil War blog called Salient Points (http://salient-points.blogspot.com) and reviews books for theCivil War Courier. Allen earned a masters degree from MIT and his bachelors from Clarkson University. Please see Allen's web site, www.AllenMesch.com, for more information.
