This Saturday, March 24, J. D. Petruzzi and I are the keynote speakers at the annual Maryland in the Civil War: A Regional Perspective put on by the Historical Society of Carroll County, Maryland. The event is held in Westminster, which is the county seat of Carroll County. J. D. and I are the opening speakers that day, and we will be discussing one of the most important but least known episodes from our Stuart’s Ride book, the charge of the 1st Delaware Cavalry, also known as Corbit’s Charge.

We’re on first, from 9:30 to 10:30. The conference is being held at Carroll Community College, 1601 Washington Road, in Westminster. Lunch is included. We will be signing books after our talk, and we will be around all morning that day.

Hopefully, if anyone’s in the area and is available to drop by, I hope you will do so, and if you’re not someone I already know in person, please be sure to introduce yourself.

We will also be around Gettysburg Friday night before the conference, probably enjoying an adult beverage or two at the Reliance Mine Saloon. If anyone wants to come by and have an adult beverage or two with us, please feel free to do so.

    Good luck on your presentation; it sounds like a great event. I envy your Friday visit to Reliance Mine. Lot’s of worse ways to spend a Friday night than a pitcher of Yeungling at Reliance mine! I actually thought about heading up this weekend myself but my youngest daughter is having her sweet sixteen party at our home. We’ll be invaded by a dozen or so of her sixteen year old friends; I’ll definately be a fish out of water in that company but I guess I’d better stick around for the festivities. Have fun!

    We’d love to have you, but you would be in serious trouble with your daughter if you weren’t around for that particular event….

    Have fun. 🙂

    I’ll actually be able to make this one, had a previously scheduled work commitment cancel. Really looking forward to the talk and a chance to meet you and JD.

    It’ll be great to meet you as well – glad you can make it!

    Can you give me a relatively firm time you’ll be at the Mines?

    I would expect no later than 9.

    Neither of us can be up real late, given that we have to be in Westminster by 8:30.
