Civil War Preservation Trust Annual Conference

Well, I pulled the trigger and have officially registered for this event that takes place in Kentucky this June. Should be an excellent time as the invited speakers list includes Kent Masterson Brown, Christopher Kolakowski, Richard McMurry and Richard Sommers. I was very fortunate that I received a Christmas bonus that covered the expences for this trip (nice to have a company that did well in 2009 as the financial pundits were all doom and gloom). I am hoping that one of my hiking friends who also has an interest in the Civil War can attend as that will cut the hotel costs in half, but I am prepared to enjoy this trip regardless.
