Learn about a Charlestown resident who fought in what has been described as "one of the bravest acts of the Civil War."  Discover the exploits of Medal of Honor recipient Charles D. Ennis and his battery of unarmed Rhode Island artillerymen.

Joining us in our presentation will be members of Battery B, 1st Rhode Island Light Artillery, a group of reenactors dedicated to educating the public about Rhode Island's history of excellence in the military science of artillery.  They will arrive in uniform and give a presentation on the life of a Civil War Artilleryman.

We will also ring in the new year with updates on CHS activities during 2016, the annual election of our Board of Directors and our plans for 2017.

Light refreshments will be served.
