Civil War exhibit opening in Beaufort, NC
Catch up - yes, that's what I've been doing a lot of lately and I've finally gotten around to the blog. Sorry to keep you all waiting for new material, but I think my head may have just stopped spinning. Tomorrow I will be in Beaufort at the NC Maritime Museum; my wife is the curator for the museum's Civil War Sesquicentennial exhibit which opens tomorrow. There will be a lecture by Dr. Judkin Browning at 3 p.m. followed by a reception from 4-6 p.m. If you aren't busy tomorrow and you are in ENC, come on down to Beaufort and check out the new exhibit. This event kicks off a year of Civil War events at the museum, which will include a speaker series (one lecture a month from now until next September) and a living history program to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the occupation of Beaufort in late March 2012. Kudos to my wonderful wife Lori, for putting together all of these activities!
