Over the past nine or ten years there have been many Messiah College history majors who have fulfilled the major’s “experiential learning component” through an internship in the collections of the National Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, PA under the guidance of museum curator Brett Kelley.
Next month Brett is going to be traveling by foot, in Confederate soldier garb, from Fredericksburg, VA to Harrisburg, PA. He will be following the path that General Ewell’s 2nd Corps took into Pennsylvania after the Battle of Chancellorsville. It is all part of the museum’s fundraising efforts. Good luck, Brett!
As someone who has made this mistake before (until I worked in MD), I think you meant Fredericksburg, VA. 🙂

Thanks, Janet. Good catch.
