I will be appearing and speaking this Sunday, May 20, 2012 at the Bennett Place in Durham, NC for their “Joining the Cause” event. While the Bennett Place is less famous than its cousin across the Virginia line — Appomattox — it was the site of the largest surrender of the war. If you had family in this conflict, chances are good that you have a personal connection to this spot of land. Come on out and enjoy the activities this weekend.
I asked them if they wanted me to focus on a particular aspect of the Boyd brothers and their units in the war. John Guss the site director told me that people seemed to really enjoy hearing the complete story. So I hope to see many of you out there so I may tell you of the story of the Boyd brothers of Diamond Hill and the impact this conflict had on them.
See you there, it should be a great weekend. I will be there Sunday all day and am scheduled to speak at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm.
