HMAC Monthly Luncheon Recap – March 2011

Speaker and Meeting Recap:

Our speaker for this month was Staff Sergeant Danial LISARELLI, Public Affairs Specialist, USAR. Present Assignment: 1st Brigade, 75th BCT Division, Houston, TX.

He spoke about his book, The Last Prison, The Untold Story of Camp Groce CSA, Universal Publishers, 1999. When Lisarelli discovered that Union prisoners of war from the Civil War were buried in Hempstead, Texas; being a descendant of six Union veterans of the Civil War, he felt an obligation to investigate. The story turned out to be true, but there was much more to it than what he bargained for.
