Stonewall Jackson Symposium

The Stonewall Jackson House's 13 Biennieal Symposium will be held this year April 23-24. Those speaking include: Robert E. L. Krick, Robert K. Krick, and Susan Church (among others.) Mrs. Church was one of the historians who offered commentary on the Jackson documentary I co-produced.

On a related note, one of my fellow SCV camp members who works at the Jackson house as a docent recently told me that the museum (like most museums now) was really hurting from the recession - so much that they closed for January and February. This just serves as a reminder that all of us who love and study history should try to patronize these establishments as often as possible and purchase gift items from them whenever we can.
