We know that many of you are committed followers of History at Sunset, and so we wanted to share with you the schedule for this year. We kick off on Friday night, with Frank O’Reilly leading a program that will start at the newly cleared overlook of the Rappahannock at Chatham, and then continue to the literal site of the Union pontoon crossing on December 11, 1862. We have only brought visitors to the Stafford side of the river here a couple of times.
Other highlights of this year’s series include our first-ever visit to Belle Plain, a walk among the Second Corps Hospitals at the Wilderness on the Carpenter Farm (where we will visit the location of this photograph), “The Tale and Trail of Stonewall Jackson’s Arm,” and more. We hope you will join us.
