I don't doubt that there was. But what I was saying is that I don't remember the national news even mentioning the 150th anniversary of the battle. They were all over the 150th anniversary of Fort Sumter, but come the anniversary of 1st Bull Run (1st Manassas) it seemed like they completely ignored it. Kinda like the only ones who'd be interested are reenactors and "everyone knows their crazy anyway." Nothing crazy about reenactors, most of them probably know a lot more about the war than most of the elementary and high school teachers. And there are plenty of us who aren't reenactors who are interested in the war.
