Turn the horses to Westminster MD

Later this afternoon I’m off to Gettysburg, where I and Eric Wittenberg will stay at the home of a local friend, then in the morning we’re off to Westminster, Maryland.  This weekend is the commemoration of Capt. Charles Corbit’s and the 1st Delaware Cavalry’s charge on June 29, 1863, against Jeb Stuart’s Confederate cavalry in the streets of the town.  For an excellent article about the event, click here.

Eric and I will be at the authors location in town to sign copies of our book on Stuart’s ride to Gettysburg.  Living history and reenactment encampments and events will be around town, as well as events at the new monument to the charge, as well as other interesting activities.  We will personally endorse copies of our book, and we’ll also have a few of the remaining copies of the Special Gettysburg Limited Edition of the book as well.

We hope to see many of our friends there – so if you’re in the area or at the event please stop by!

  1. Talked to the boys this evening, and those who are in the area, I do hope you take advantage of heading to Westminster, MD tomorrow, as I know you will have a great day.

  2. How can I find a list of names of the soldiers in the First Delaware Cavalry company C&D that lost their lives at Corbit’s charge in Westminster, Maryland. I have been looking on the net but I am new to this. Is it even possible to find them?
