OLD BALDY CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE OF PHILADELPHIA

Image_202103192218

The Old Baldy Civil War Round Table presents the Michael A. Cavanaugh Book Award to a book written for young people about the history of the American Civil War Era. Michael A. Cavanaugh was a founding member of our round table, who worked for over forty years to build and sustain the organization. Several years ago, at our 40th anniversary luncheon, we honored him by creating this award in his name. Wanting to get young people interested in history, we decided to present the award to a book written for them. We have been successful in reviewing and choosing winners. Presenting the award in a way to involve our intended audience has been our challenge. We need assistance in determining the best way to present the award publicly to get young people and the community involved. This project will include researching available options and developing a plan to implement. With a plan we anticipate presenting the award more regularly.
