After a pizza lunch on the field Alyce Army gave a talk about the Civil War Veterans Reunions. Facing into a cold wind while the rest of huddled in the wind shadow of the Peace Monument, Alyce told the story of how each of the reunions was organized and why. Her stories were sprinkled with humor and an occasional sad note and were all entertaining and obviously well researched. The actuarial tables for each of the reunions were most interesting with the vets beating the odds each time. Politics, personal interests, vanity, and money all entered into the planning of the reunions but in the end the veterans themselves, and their continued presence on the field, determined how the field is presented to the public and perceived today. I hope I get to see this presentation again sometime.

Sorry no pix of JD Petruzzi's presentation of Cavalry Action, at noon I took my new copy of John Imhof's book out to the field to try it out and sitting in the sun and out of the wind got quite comfortable and nodded off. After the weekends excitment and walking I really enjoyed a short nap on Hallowed Ground.
