Hops and History – September 20

Another event coming up in the next few months that I’d bring to your attention:
HopsAndHistorySept20

Loudoun County Public Library’s program of “Hops and History” aims to bring history out to a less formal setting.  In this case, Dragon Hops Brewing, in Purcellville, Virginia.

My talk will focus on the Army of the Potomac’s movements through Loudoun County in June 1863.  With this being a localized event, I will provide more coverage of the stories, places, and participants in Loudoun… and less so to the grand strategy and operations.  In short, we will consider the marks left behind by the passing of that army… in addition to how the army’s stay in Loudoun affected its performance on the fields at Gettysburg.

Again, the event details:

Location: Dragon Hops Brewing, 130 East Main Street, Purcellville, Virginia 20132

Date/Time: Thursday, September 20, at 7 p.m.

Hop…. um… Hope to see you there!
