here. I do not plan to attend due to other commitments.
I also learned recently of a new book coming about about the Army of the Potomac winter encampment along the USMRR Aquia Line. The book is called, "Valley Forge" 1863: 93 Days That Saved America" by Al Connor. I have not read the book but reviews of lectures based on the book indicate that Connor describes the rebuilding of the Army over the winter under General Hooker as the key component to ultimate success of the Army of the Potomac. I look forward to reading it.
