Today I was interviewed over the phone about the American Civil War Museum at Tredegar in Richmond for an article that will appear in the Fredericksburg Free-Lance Star. I had a chance to make some of the points that were included in my recent review of the museum on this blog, and the reporter agreed to include the URL in the article. That might bring some new readers to this site. Anyway, the article should appear in the paper soon and I will provide a link if the piece appears online.
