Just a reminder that Noel Harrison and John Hennessy will be presenting the first of three forums/discussions/talks derived from Mysteries and Conundrums this coming Monday, September 10, at 7 p.m. at the Headquarters Branch of the Central Rappahannock Regional Library on Caroline Street. We’ll talk about the blog, look at some old mysteries and conundrums we’ve tackled, and reveal a few new ones as well. Monday’s program will focus on the wartime civilian landscape–mostly exploring historic images. The October 1 program will focus on the battlefields, and on November 19, Eric Mink will give a visual reflection on the evolution of the park.
The library building, by the way, is visible in the left background of this early 20th Century view of the Union House–a wartime boarding house that was once one of the most prominent in Fredericksburg. The Union House no longer stands….
We hope to see you on Monday. The program is free.
