The Archives Committee follows the system described in a comprehensive handbook for archiving East Shore records and related material. The purpose is to ensure the filing of unsorted material so it can be easily retrieved as an aid to future church activities. This activity is a vital element that helps to establish the identity of the East Shore Unitarian Church as an ongoing organization.
Oversees the work and mission of the library.
Military History Group
We meet to discuss major battles that have affected the history of the world as we know it. We look at:
- the political and strategic causes of a particular battle;
- the tactical operations, turning points, and outcomes;
- the technology and logistics that played a part in the battle;
- the impact on individuals, whether they were combatants, officers, or civilians;
- how the battle could have been avoided; and
- the impact on history if the outcome had been different.
Like a book club, battles are chosen ahead of time by a leader who has a particular interest in that topic. The leader researches the battle, provides an overview at the beginning of the meeting, and leads the discussion. We meet the second Thursday of each month, 7:00-8:30 p.m., Room E-208.
