Events are held on the last Sunday of the month at 2 p.m. at the Graffiti House, 19484 Brandy Road, Brandy Station, Va 22714.   There is no charge for attendance, but donations to aid further restorations of the Graffiti House are encouraged.

So visitors get a “two for the price of one” here, visit the house to take in the recently uncovered graffiti and then stay for the presentations!

I’ll present on the Edwards Ferry crossing by the Army of the Potomac in June, on the anniversary of that crossing.  Sort of convenient in a way, I guess, offering a segway from the first battle of the campaign into a key event along the course of the campaign.
