Well, even though there hasn't been much cooking on this blog in the past few weeks, things have been percolating behind the scenes and I have gotten enough public speaking requests to warrant a post! As always, if you’d like me to come speak at your event, just shoot me an e-mail and I will see if I can swing it. In the meantime, I’ll count on running into some of you at the following events:November 12 – McLean Historical Society. Topic: Freedman’s Village at Arlington
November 16 – Loudon Civil War Book Signing
May 24 – Clara Barton National Historic Site. Topic: USCTs during the Siege of Petersburg
June 20 – “Campaign Before Richmond” Sesquicentennial Symposium (featuring Bob Krick, Dick Sommers, and Louis Manarin) at Deep Bottom Park. Topic: The First Battle of Deep Bottom
September 9 – Richmond Civil War Round Table. Topic: New Market Heights
September 26-28 – New Market Heights Re-enactment Weekend, Henrico County
I am a social studies teacher in Arlington, VA. I am organizing a Civil War Day for my students during the morning of June 10, 2014. Is there an email address for you so I can let you know more about this event and see if you might be available? Please let me know -- you came highly recommended!
