Coming Up Live From the Battlefield, July 21, 2021

8 07 2021

In just a couple of weeks (that makes me really nervous, because it’s just 13 days and I don’t feel nearly ready), I’ll be coming to you live via Facebook with Dana Shoaf, Melissa Winn, and Civil War Times for a series of short vids from various sites at Manassas National Battlefield Park, on the 160th Anniversary of the First Battle of Bull Run (Manassas). It should be fun – I’ll be sharing various cool (well, what I consider cool) stories from the field, and we’ll be joined by Superintendent Brandon Bies to discuss some new additions/deletions on the field that will greatly enhance interpretation of the First Battle of Bull Run. You can follow Civil War Times Magazine, and their wonderful First Monday videos (ours will be a Third Wednesday) on Facebook here. Below is a little example of how these things work from a couple of years ago. But we’ll be mostly outside. And hot. We’ll probably be really, really hot.

Since my Sainted Great Grandfather, Philip Reilly and his brother Bernard, lined up on the property, where the Bull Run Winery is now, with the 69th NYS Militia. I feel compelled, to buy a few bottles to take home and send some north to my son and friends. Also, I will send an article up to Ray, at the Irish Echo on the 69th and the 160th. Looking to see, if you found anything new, since 2018.
