Blogs evolve, and so we are taking a bit of a new bent with what was formerly known as Fredericksburg Remembered.
This blog has evolved into a hybrid of public history and Fredericksburg regional history blog, where Noel and I (John Hennessy) have shared the cool and interesting things we’ve discovered beyond the realm of local Civil War history. We’ll continue to offer up some occasional commentary on interpretation and public history, and we’ll continue to reflect on local non-Civil War sites and stories of national significance in the Fredericksburg region. But we are expanding to take a look at issues, stories, and sites related to the battlefields at Manassas (and perhaps some places in between). As always your comments and suggestions are welcome.
Dutifully, we must point out that all expressions here are unofficial and are not intended to represent the views of the management of the various organizations whose staff may contribute. We are simply trying to engage viewers in what we think are some pretty interesting conversations and debates about matters of history, memory, and interpretation.
