“We Are A Remembering People”

The following video was produced by the National Park Service and offers some scenes from yesterday’s opening ceremony marking the sesquicentennial of the Overland Campaign. It features excerpts from addresses by Northeast Regional Director Mike Caldwell, Park Superintendent Lucy Lawliss, FRSP Chief Historian John Hennessy, RNBP Ranger Alshley Whitehead Luskey, and Dr. James I. “Bud” Robertson, Jr.  Well done.

    A great event. Very nice to meet John Hennessy there as well as Frank O’Reilly, two great national treasures.

    I also enjoyed Bud Robertson’s keynote, although I found his remarks on “political correctness” a bit discordant.
