I’m out early this morning to catch the tours at Monocacy. The staff there has already been hard at work for the 150th – events started on Saturday. Please check their Twitter Feed and Facebook Page for updates. Great stuff going on there.
I’ll get in some tweets myself. Haven’t seen what the hashtag of preference is. But I’ll use #monoc150 in lieu of anything official. I’ll also work in some photo updates here as time permits.
Crowd at the 7 am tour:
Fields where the morning skirmishes took place, 150 years ago.
Guns of Monocacy map? Well this Napoleon from Revere, the only authentic piece on the field for many years, has moved four times since 2000.
