USCT Event in Henrico

If you happen to find yourself near Richmond this Saturday, I’d like to invite you to attend Henrico County’s “African Americans in the Civil War” event at the historic Armour House.

The Armour House is in eastern Henrico off of Creighton Road, at 4001 Clarendon Road.

At this event you will be able to interact with members of the re-created 38th USCT, view exhibit panels on New Market Heights, and find out more about the men who won the Medal of Honor by listening to talks given by yours truly.

Most exciting for me is that I received word today that six of the descendants of Sgt. Edward Ratcliff will be attending the event (for more on Ratcliff’s descendants see here).

Ratcliff was in Company C of the 38th USCT and was one of the fourteen Medal of Honor winners.

The event will run from 10:30 AM – 2:00 PM. For more information call (804) 652-3411.

Hope to see you there!
