I have been working with the Ohio Valley Civil War Association for nearly ten years. The other weekend between my jaunts to research kiln furniture in Rockbridge County, I attended the 150th anniversary of the Civil War at Manassas. Our group taught about the Signal Corps and communications during the Civil War. I actually did not even get a chance to go see the big battle reenactment! It was incredibly hot, much less adding an additonal several layers of clothes and standing for most of the day! But, as usual, I had a great time working with everyone, and teaching. Now, back to making pottery!
