It’s always a treat to go back to the Old Dominion, and it’s always a special treat when that involves going back to the Shenandoah Valley.
Today I’m on my way to the second Sesquicentennial Conference of 2014 held by the Shenandoah Valley Battlefield Foundation. It’s called, “Is the World Being Set on Fire? The 1864 Shenandoah Campaign and the Burning.” There’s a terrific lineup of speakers, and I’m really looking forward to it. As usual, I’ll report on what I’ve learned.
