The actual battle of Fredericksburg occurred 150 years ago, December 11 - 15th, and several sesquicentennial events are scheduled. Since the events are spread out both geographically and timewise, I'm going to only post the weekend of December 8-9 (there are events Friday but I'm working), and add details as I can assemble them. There is also a $50 dinner on the 13th that looks promising, which I may do, but will have to decide closer to the date.
Basically, both Saturday and Sunday will have Fredericksburg events - some at different locations, to commemorate the battle. I will set the dates now; and folks can come as they wish. I will leave my phone number for anyone who wants to go and we can discuss carpooling, days/times we want to go closer to the event. Sorry to be so vague, but at this point, I just want to "save the weekend," and will finalize with more details as I can procure them.
