Memorial Day at Bennett Place

6 05 2011

Bennett Place, Durham, NC

I received the following from John Guss, the site manager at Bennett Place State Historic Site in Durham, NC:

This month we remember the American soldier with a special living history program at Bennett Place in Durham. We will have American soldiers/living historians from various time periods in American history, The American Revolution, American Civil War, Spanish-American War, WWII, and others.

Please join us as we honor the American soldier Saturday, May 28th, 10 am – 4 pm.

Thank you for supporting North Carolina State Historic Sites and our United States Military.

I wrote about Bennett Place in my Collateral Damage column for America’s Civil War a couple of issues ago, and I couldn’t have done it without John and my friend Teej. If you’re in that area, be sure to stop by.
