Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission

I am pleased to report that today I was contacted and asked to join the Virginia Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission.  It is truly an honor to be asked to take part and, of course, I accepted without hesitation.  My introduction to the commission will be next Wednesday when I will take part in a workgroup meeting in Richmond.  This is a great opportunity as it will give me a chance to bring ideas that I’ve developed as a historian and educator to a public setting.  I will be joining a workgroup whose responsibilities include "signature events and activities."  This is surely going to be a learning experience for me. 

What a great way to start the weekend.
