Where will you be one year from today–Friday, August 3, 2012? No plans yet? Well, God willing, I hope you’ll be in Culpeper for a gala reception and the “World Premiere” of a multi-media musical stage production of “Marching Through Culpeper.” Don’t miss this opportunity to see your favorite characters including-Constance, Aaron, Stringfellow, and Sadie, come to life before your eyes. 

Six performances are scheduled: Aug. 3, 4, 10, 11, 2012 at 7:30 p.m. and Aug. 5, 12, 2012 at 2:30 p.m. in the beautiful Eastern View High School auditorium. 

Two full weekends of Civil War related activities are being planned as we commemorate the Battle of Cedar Mountain 150th Anniversary. You’ll want to be here to listen to legendary scholars, take tours, see living history along 
downtown streets, and watch demonstrations on the battlefield. All proceeds will benefit battlefield preservation in Culpeper County. 

So make your overnight reservations now! Just as in August of 1862, all roads will lead to Culpeper in August of 2012. We’ll need the involvement of the whole community, so let me know if you’d like to help. 

UPCOMING, NEXT FRIDAY, AUGUST 12, 2011, 7:30 P.M. CULPEPER DEPOT: 

The Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield invite you to help commemorate the 149th anniversary of the battle at the Culpeper Depot as we welcome Gibson Worsham of Richmond to Culpeper. 

He will present the vivid wartime memoirs of his ancestor, John H. Worsham, as detailed in his book, “One of Jackson’s Foot Cavalry.” John H. Worsham kept a diary with one of the most complete first hand accounts of the Battle of Cedar Mountain. This is a historical snapshot through the eyes of a soldier in the midst of a fierce and bloody battle. I generally quote from this diary on my battlefield tours. 

Light refreshments will be provided at the conclusion of the presentation.
