    FPA Tri-Chapter Fall Meeting Hosted by the Northeast Chapter

    "Four score and seven years ago...." began the famous speech delivered by President Abraham Lincoln to the multitude assembled at the Gettysburg battleground in November of 1863. 

    Gettysburg is the site of the Fall 2019 Tri-Chapters Meeting, taking you back into history, into the village and on the battleground of the most important engagement of the American Civil War -- fought 156 years ago. And a topic of continuing and scholarly discussions today.
