Off to Raleigh
Well folks, I am off to Raleigh for the weekend. I’ll be speaking tomorrow at the Civil War Symposium at the Museum of History. The title of my talk: “’A People Without Monuments is a People without Heroes’: Remembering the Civil War in Appalachian North Carolina.”
On Saturday, I’ll be hanging with friends from the 26th North Carolina Troops, Reactivated, as they conduct a living history on the grounds of the capital. Then at 2:00 pm on Saturday, I’ll be attending the dedication of the conserved flag of the 23rd North Carolina Troops at the Museum.
Looks like a great weekend, and I hope to see you there.
