Useful Link for Events in the Commonwealth
The Virginia Sesquicentennial Commission has published a list of Civil War events being held across Virginia this summer and beyond. The Commission has already started to include events for 2011. The upcoming commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the Civil War is sure to offer many meaningful opportunities to learn more about the conflict that cost over 600,000 American lives and radically transformed the United States. As we go about our busy lives, I hope that we will find the time to remember the Civil War and the impact that it had on Virginia and the rest of the country. Attending Civil War-related events is a perfect way to do so.
