Second Annual Emerging Civil War Symposium at Stevenson Ridge
August 7 – 9, 2015
Please join us August 7 – 9, 2015 for the Second Annual Emerging Civil War Symposium at Stevenson Ridge. Registration is $95. Tickets or reservations are required.
Meg and I attended the Emerging Civil War Symposium at Stevenson Ridge.
We stayed in the Corn Crib at the site. We had baby bats in the chimney.
I went out and picked a set of root beers from the Pop Shop from different parts of the country to represent different styles of root beers. I picked Thunder Beast, Virgil’s, Bulldog and Captain Eli’s.
Meg was a speaker at the symposium. She spoke about General Letterman. He arranged to have the soldiers picked up on the battlefields to be butchered in the local hosptals and horse barns. It cost many of these
soldiers an arm and a leg to attend these battles during the Civil War.
That’s about what it cost Meg and I to attend the symposium and tour the
battlefield, stay in bed and breakfasts and scout out food and gasoline
along the way.
This shows how serious we were of touring Maryland and Virgina with our sodas bought at the Pop Shop in Frederick, Maryland. This is a coffee soda and a Nehi grape soda. They are hard to find outside of Frederick. I had several root beers in a couple cases in the trunk. The weather was a bit muggy and it rained in the early mornings several times. Overall it was a beautiful week.
I have a series of pictures of my beautiful wife and guest speaker at the Symposium. Im very proud of her. She was great!
She is talking to one of her fans here after her talk.
This is the building where the symposium took place.
Several of these root beers I bought in Maryland and brought to the symposium. Watching NASCAR in our cool Corn Crib, drinking rare root beers and being sung to by baby bats were highlights to our trip.
