It’s crazy that it is September and I already have a booked February and March 2013 and something (I’ll write about later when I know more) for July 2013.
On the eve of my departure to interpret experiences of the civilians including Blacks at Antietam National Battlefield during the 1862 Maryland Campaign, I wanted to inform y’all of the February 2013 symposium “Lest We Forget: A Conference on Enslavement and Emancipation.” This will be hosted thanks in large part to the Prince William County (Virginia) Historic Preservation Department, who have been kind to me for a long time. I was asked to give a talk on my current research obsession, the Silas Omohundro family of Richmond, Virginia.
I was lucky enough to speak at the Association for the Study of African-American Life & History (ASALH) conference in 2011 on them and again for Prince William County in February 2012. I am personally excited to see so many of my friends and colleagues participating. I will get you the conference schedule as it becomes available. Also, the website in the flyer is not valid but the dates and location are.
