What a day in the field we had today!
Emerging Civil War once again partnered with Civil War Trust for a second day of Facebook LIVE broadcasts to commemorate the 155th anniversary of the battle of Chancellorsville. (You can still see them archived at the Civil War Trust’s Facebook page.)
Kris White took the helm today. We were joined by ECW historians Dan Davis, Steward Henderson, and Edward Alexander; National Park Service historians Pete Maugle and Beth Parnicza; and Central Virginia Battlefields Trust President Tom Van Winkle. The Trust’s social media guru, Connor Townsend, kept us all looking good.
We hit up Hazel Grove, Fairview, the Chancellorsville ruins, and Salem Church. Temps soared into the 90s, but we were so pumped up, it was easy to push through the day!
