Don’t miss it! I will be speaking to – and hopefully with – the good folks of the Loudoun Valley Civil War Roundtable in Leesburg, VA on June 14, 2011. This will be a program on the twisted tale of Peter Conover Hains, who fired the opening salvo of the First Battle of Bull Run with his 30-pdr Parrott gun, “Long Tom”. This is my second confirmed speaking gig for next year. I have two others which I’m pretty sure are go, one at the end of June and one at the end of September. I don’t know if any more are in the offing, but I’ll keep the Book Me, Danno page updated for my fans, both of you.
