March is fast approaching, & so is the Spring reenactment at Endview Plantation, on March 17-19, in Newport News, Virginia. The scenario for the weekend this year will be the 145th anniversary of the Battle of Big Bethel, one of the first land battles of the War Between the States. The Federal commander will be General Eric Gardner, & the Confederates will be under the command of General Billy Smith. Remember folks ... this could be the LAST event held at Endview Plantation, due to Newport News city government selling off most of the land adjacent to the plantation for development!!! So, dust off those early war uniforms, & come join us for a weekend of fun, camaraderie around the campfires, ... & even a few battles just to throw a little spice into it!! For further information, you can contact Endview Plantation at:
I have the pleasure to remain,
Your Most Obedient Servant.
