Hittin’ the Road…

5 06 2011

…to our nation’s capital – and Capitol.

In a few hours I’m heading to Washington, DC where I’ll be presenting my program on Peter Hains to the Capitol Hill Civil War Roundtable. Tomorrow I plan on doing some sightseeing, starting off by paying a visit to All Not So Quiet on the Potomac host Ron Baumgarten, who works in town in the Winder Building, home today of the U.S. Trade Representative. I hope then to hit Ford’s Theater and the National Building Museum, which is a beautiful structure and originally housed the Pension office. For monuments I’m taking along my paperback copy of Testament to Union to help guide me about – lots of walking.

The meeting starts at 7 PM in the Rayburn House Office Building., and runs until about 8:30.

On the way home on Tuesday I hope to stop by Manassas National Battlefield Park, and will proceed to Winchester for some field work on my upcoming Collateral Damage article and to hopefully meet up with e-quaintance Robert Moore, aka Cenantua.

So, a busy couple of days ahead.





Change of Plans

Rayburn House Office Building

Thanks to potential jury duty, the appearance of Bull Runnings before the JCCW – er, the Capitol Hill Civil War Roundtable set for April 4 has been rescheduled. I will be presenting my Bull Run themed program in the Judicial Hearing Room of the Rayburn House Office Building (where the Watergate hearings were held!) on June 6, 2011. Yep, D-Day. The presentation will look at the Battle of First Bull Run through the aged eyes of participant Peter Conover Hains.

Thanks to President George Franks III for his understanding and flexibility in rescheduling this engagement which I absolutely did not want to cancel.
