It seems that this past weekend’s events at Harper’s Ferry in commemoration of the 150th anniversary of John Brown’s raid are being recognized as the kickoff for the Civil War sesquicentennial. This may come as a surprise to some folks in Kansas. A few bloggers were in attendance for at least some of the festivities, and as they post their thoughts and pictures, I’ll link to them here.
