Note on Hanover

Busy, busy, busy. I've been traveling, speaking, and tackling some home improvement projects, so not much time to blog lately. But I did want to take a few moments to give you a recap of one of the places I've been.

Last Sunday, I had the chance to stand on the ground in and around Hanover Court House. It was really a special occurrence, as last Sunday was the 150th Anniversary of the battle. The Historic Hanover Tavern put together a lecture and a tour of the battle site. I gave the lecture part of the program, while a little over 45 guests ate lunch. This was followed by a tour led by Robert E. L. Krick. We loaded on buses and visited Slash Church, the Kinney Farm, and the site of the fight between the 18th and 37th North Carolina Regiments, and the 2nd Maine, 25th and 44th New York regiments. A special addition was a visit to historic Dundee, a favorite haunt of JEB Stuart during the War.

Overall, it was a fabulous way to spend May 27, 2012.
