Here are a couple more appearances I’ll be making in 2011.
June 29th, 2011 – Gettysburg, PA and Manassas, VA, The Civil War Institute of Gettysburg College, 29th Annual Summer Conference, Mobilizing for War. I provided a copy of the press release here. This is a week-long conference, and will include one day of touring the Manassas battlefield with the focus of the tours being the First Battle of Bull Run. There will be anywhere from five to eight tour buses and tour guides, each conducting their own custom tour. My tour will be Hidden Mysteries of First Bull Run. This tour will be geared for tourists already familiar with the battlefield and the campaign.
October 1, 2011 – Aurora, CO, The Rocky Mountain Civil War Roundtable, in conjunction with Aurora Community College, presents the Rocky Mountain Civil War Symposium, The Eastern Theater from First Manassas through the Seven Days Campaign (go here for registration info). I’m not sure yet what I’ll be speaking about, though it will be a topic concerning First Bull Run for sure.
I’ll post updates here as speakers and topics are updated, but so far for sure I know that Ethan Rafuse and Ed Bearss will also be leading tours at Bull Run, and Ethan and Jim Morgan are part of the Rocky Mountain lineup .
If you do decide to attend any of my speaking events, do me a favor and lay off playing solitaire or any other card game for at least 48 hours beforehand. The Queen of Diamonds has been known to exaggerate negative reactions to public speakers. Just ask Laurence Harvey (above). Thanks in advance.
If you’d like me to speak to your group, leave a comment on the Book Me, Danno page or shoot me an email at the address to the right.
