Virtual September Meeting
We are trying out our virtual format again this month. There will be no in-person dinner meeting in September. We will be presenting our program via the Zoom platform live on Monday, September 14th. Our speaker will be David A. Welker and he will tell us about "The Cornfield: Antietam's Bloody Turning Point. RVCWRT members should keep an eye on their e-mail for an invitation. Virtual programming is the best course at present, given the uncertainties of the pandemic and changing administrative requirements. We will be evaluating conditions for resuming in-person dinner meetings later this fall.
Our postponed May bus tour to Seven Days’ battle sites has been cancelled for 2020. Hopefully, we will try again in 2021.
During this turbulent time, we have continued to do some good. Our RVCWRT-sponsored Bearss intern, Emily Sherrard of Bayfield, Wisconsin, completed a productive tour here in Fredericksburg with National Park Service (NPS). We are evaluating scholarship applicants and hope to award a $2,000 scholarship soon to a deserving NPS intern. Paul Stier continues to line up speakers for later this year (we had to find some substitutes), 2021 and 2022. Paul oversees our Facebook page which posts new material daily. We have created a RVCWRT YouTube channel. Go to YouTube, search “rvcwrt” and you will be able to view Marc Thompson’s analysis of First Manassas (our August 2020 program). We made a substantial donation to Central Virginia Battlefields Trust, raised a dollar at a time from pre-pandemic monthly raffles and occasional auction sales.
As always, we appreciate your patience and support.
