Jackson Symposium

My friend Susan Church will be speaking at the Stonewall Jackson House's symposium this year. Susan was the person responsible for inviting me, along with director Ken Carpenter, to come to Jackson's Mill, West Virginia to film the Jackson documentary and to come back one year later for the premier screening. I would encourage as many as possible to attend this year's symposium in Lexington:

The Stonewall Jackson House has announced plans for the 12th biennial Stonewall Jackson Symposium sponsored by the Stonewall Jackson Foundation April 18-20.

The symposium will feature authors and historians currently involved in research, including Susan Church of Philippi, W.Va.; John Coski of the Museum of the Confederacy in Richmond; Dale Harter of Bridgewater College; John Hennessy of the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park; A.

The weekend’s events will conclude with a Sunday morning tour of Jackson’s Lexington by Fred Bloom.
