Off to Westminster

Tommorrow (Friday) I’ll be off to the conference in Westminster MD – Maryland and the Civil War: A Regional Perspective – hosted by the Carroll County Historical Society and Carroll Community College.  Well, actually I’ll be driving to Gettysburg first, where I’ll meet up with my partner in crime, Eric Wittenberg, and where we’ll be staying at the home of a good friend just outside town.  The conference is on Saturday, and Eric and I will be the keynote speakers beginning at 9:30 am.  During the general session, we’ll be discussing our book on Jeb Stuart’s Ride in general, and the battle at Westminster specifically.  I’m going to be discussing how and why we wrote the book, what we hoped to accomplish with it, and Eric will be discussing the Westminster fight in detail.

The conference, their 10th annual, promises to have very interesting content, and we’re looking forward to an educational time.  Eric and I will have copies of our book for personalized sale.  If any of my readers can make it, we’d look forward to seeing/meeting you.

Check out the conference website for the itinerary and more details.  I will post a wrap-up when I return on Sunday.

  1. J.D.,

    9:30 AM time slot is the best at one of these deals. Never is good to go on right after lunch, as most folks tend to doze off right after a meal. 🙂 Look forward to hearing about the seminar when you return.

    Hope you guys have a great trip, and please send along my best wishes to the fine Doc and his family.

    Take Care!
