April Program Update!

The First Defenders have learned that perennial April guest Ed Bearss recently suffered a fall at his home.  Although not seriously injured, Ed will be off his feet for a week or two and will be unable to present his “Evening with Ed” program on the Battle of Shiloh.

While wishing Ed a speedy return to the lecture circuit and battlefields, our April program will now feature First Defender Wally Heimbach and the story of Winfield Scott Hancock at the Battle of Gettysburg.  A former battlefield guide, few people are more informed about “Hancock the Superb” and his legendary actions at Gettysburg.  This is another program not to be missed!


  • Please have Wally Heimbach contact me by email or cell 973-390-1058. I am Joe Mangino’s daughter, Carol Marceca. Thank you.

    • Ms. Marceca,

      Your request was passed onto Wally on 5/8. If he has not yet contacted you, we’re certain he will as he was very interested in your note.
