A lot is going on with the Cynthiana Battlefields Foundation! We hosted the 1864 tour/luminary lighting earlier this month, and received a good turnout for this event. We now have back issues of the Last Raid issue of Blue & Gray Magazine for sale on our website (generously donated by Blue & Gray which we are using to raise more funds), we have another tour/luminary event slated for July to cover the 1862 fighting, a big membership drive event in the works for September, a Civil War Trust Park Day for next year, a potential speaker series for next year, and also the genesis of a Civil War Weekend next June. Add to that a potential sign program to mark the sites around town, a revamped Civil War tour, sheesh, the list goes on and on!
If you are not a member of the CBF, now is a great time to join, June is the last month we offer our Founder's level of memberships, but we also have plenty other of membership levels to choose from.
Our website lists events, a shop where one can join, donate, and/or buy the Last Raid issue, and we also have an active blog which features the occasional post by Richard McCormick of My Civil War Obsession fame. Come check it out! cynthianabattlefieldsfoundation.org
