Join us this month for:
“Witness at Gettysburg“
Presented By: Annette Hubbell
The pursuit of family history includes the desire to carve out a place
for one's family in the larger historical picture, a sense of responsibility
to preserve the past for future generations, and a sense of self-satisfaction
in accurate storytelling.
It is that last point, storytelling, which brings Miss Hattie to our
November meeting. Behind the discovery of dates and family lineage are
the stories of family. Miss Hattie Elizabeth Turner was a witness to
the Battle of Gettysburg. Inspired by the diary of Hattie Elizabeth Unangst,
Miss Hubbell spent nearly two years researching and writing this performance
after spending time in Gettysburg in 2007. Miss Hubbell also draws upon the
words and experiences from other witnesses to the war's fearful struggle,
weaving a compelling story of American grit and determination that cannot
help but leave one with a renewed appreciation for the sacrifice our forefathers
made to preserve the ideals of this Country. The women, the soldiers, the boys
who found themselves in uniforms, and how the sheer number of war's dead forever
changed our burial customs and traditions is told.
Writer and actress Annette Hubbell takes us back to Gettysburg and its
frightful aftermath. Thousands of soldiers converged, fought, and just as
suddenly left, leaving 30,000 casualties. Just what does a town of 2400 do
when suddenly faced with this calamity? Witness to Gettysburg opens on the
eve of the battle and ends with President Lincoln's Gettysburg Address.
"I love to tell her story," Annette says. "It is one of courage and conviction
Annette reinvented herself, acting and writing after retiring as General Manager
from a San Diego North County water district. Currently she is performing in
Witness to Gettysburg (over 120 performances) and as Eleanor Roosevelt in
Tea with Mrs. Roosevelt. Witness to Gettysburg is also available on DVD.
Adapted from the stage play, the film adds music and original photographs to
this dramatic story. The DVD will be available at the meeting for a special
performance price of $10.00.
Visitors and Guests are Welcome at all Society Meetings
