Susan, what a wonderful weekend event.  Sounds like lots of people have put in a lot of work to make it successful.  Let's hope for good weather and a big turnout.

Please tell us more about the Drum Barracks.  I've never heard of it.  I guess it was a Federal army post, hm?

Boy, would I love to talk to Mrs. Thaddeus Lowe!  She must have been the long-suffering wife of the inventor-gadgeteer-pioneer.  He wasn't home very much during his two years with the Army of the Potomac, so she was probably a temporary war widow like so many others.

Tell General Ord that he's famous because he has a Laramie street named for him.  I never knew that Ord Street was named for anybody until I "enlisted" in the Civil War in August 2005.  That's a long time to be ignorant about my very own street.

Let us know about the big living-history event.  Berdan's sharpshooters, trolley, gosh, what fun!
