To my friends, I am off to Virginia to do further research for my two Civil War plays on General Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant. Hopefully I can visit most of the Virginia battlefields and museums. If I have enough time I may visit Gettysburg and Antietam.
Suggestions on who to meet, places to visit, and thoughts on reasonable lodging would be appreciated. Of course, ideas for good bookstores and coffee shops would also be great.
It all starts on Saturday evening September 1, as I board Amtrak heading to Petersburg Virginia. After a visit to the McClean House at Appomattox Courthouse, I will be boarding Amtrak on Sunday, September 9 to head back to Orlando.
