Submitted

Wayne County Civil War Roundtable Program, free and open to the public in the Wooster branch of the Wayne County Public Libraries, will be Sept. 19 at 6:30 p.m. and will have Dan Welch, co-author of “The Last Road North: A Guide to the Gettysburg Campaign, 1863.”
 
Welch will explore how the two armies cat-and-moused their way across Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania in the weeks before the battle. Welch's book, based on the Civil War Trails, is packed with dozens of lesser-known sites related to the Gettysburg Campaign.
 
Welch currently serves as a primary and secondary educator with a public school district in Northeast Ohio. He was previously the education programs coordinator for the Gettysburg Foundation, the nonprofit partner of Gettysburg National Military Park, as well as a seasonal park ranger at Gettysburg National Military Park since 2009. During that time he has led numerous programs on the campaign and battle for school groups, families and visitors of all ages.
 
Welch received his B.A. in instrumental music education from Youngstown State University, where he studied under the famed French hornist William Slocum. He earned his M.A. in military history with a Civil War Era concentration at American Military University. He also has studied under the tutelage of Dr. Allen C. Guelzo as part of the Gettysburg Semester at Gettysburg College. He currently resides with his wife Sarah in Boardman, Ohio.
 
Welch will have his book, “The Last Road North: A Guide to the Gettysburg Campaign, 1863,” for sale at the meeting. The price is $15.
