Monocacy Twelve-pounder

Speaking of Monocacy, here's a photo I took a few years ago during their battle anniversary weekend.


I've got to save some of my energy for January 5, that will be the first day of my sixty-day detail at the battlefield.

Did I mention I'm excited about this?



Best wishes from Boonsboro,

Just to see if anyone is still tuning in...

Who are they, and what's their connection?




Eagerly awaiting my 60-day gig at Monocacy...

Back in the saddle...for sixty days

Well hello there!  It's been a while.

I now have something to celebrate and post about again.

Starting on January 5, 2020 I will begin a sixty-day detail at Monocacy National Battlefield.

It's a Civil War Park, It's 25 minutes from home (currently I commute five hours a day), it's a Civil War park, it's in a rural setting, it's a Civil War park, I'll be working with my former supervisor from the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument (who is fabulous)

And...

I'll be able to spend the evenings with my wonderful wife.

(Did I mention that it's a Civil War park?)

As I anticipate enjoying the two-month respite from the killing commute and the grind of Washington DC, I'll be posting regularly to this blog on all things Monocracy-Related for the duration of this two-month slice of heaven.
