Speaking Engagement: McLean Historical Society
I wanted to let readers know that I will be speaking to the McLean Historical Society on April 14. Jacque-Lynne Schulman, president of that organization, as well as the Historical Society of Fairfax County, has graciously invited me to give a talk on Fort Marcy. This will be my first speaking engagement on the war since starting the blog, and I am looking forward to sharing what I have learned while researching Fort Marcy and its role in the defenses of Washington. My presentation will also place Fort Marcy in the context of local historical events, including the Union occupation of Langley/Lewinsville (present-day McLean), the Second Manassas Campaign, and Jubal Early's attack on Fort Stevens. I hope to see you next month in McLean!
