  1. Hello Robert,

    This is Laris from Lime Projects. We’re working on a project for the Rosenbach Museum in Philadelphia showcasing new Lincoln materials that are being made available online for the first time. There are also a ton of elements to the site, including exclusive projects relating to the documents.

    We would love to connect with your Cenantua Blog. Your Civil War content totally fits our projects direction.

    Could you let your Lincoln fans know about

    Take a look.

    Thanks in advance.

  2. Hi Robert,

    My name is Brandon Samuels and I really like some of the posts you have on your blog. Since you have an interest in blogging, I thought that you might want to know about a new web site, The idea is to create an interactive historical record of anything and everything, based on specific events that combine to form timelines. We’re trying to achieve a sort of user-created multimedia history, in which no event is too big or too small to record. Feel free to create events using excerpts and/or links from your blog. You will generate traffic and awareness of your blog, and you will be contributing to the recording of history.

    With your interest in the American Civil War, you should check out this timeline. So far it is a work in progress and we would definitely love for more people to contribute.
    There are also many other timelines people have been working on, so feel free to search for other topics.

    Give us a try and let me know your thoughts.

  5. Hi, Robert –

    Just as it is today, Fairfax County, Virginia, was a strategic hub of activity throughout the Capital Region during the Civil War. The County will once again serve as the crossroads to history as the region plays host to myriad of commemorative events and special exhibits marking the Sesquicentennial, or 150th anniversary, of the Civil War beginning in Spring 2011.

    Visit Fairfax, the official tourism organization for Fairfax County, Virginia (, welcomes the world to stay with us for this momentous occasion. Centrally located in the region and literally on the border of Bull Run and Manassas National Battlefield Park, Fairfax County is the ideal base camp from which you can easily get to historic battlefields and attractions, the majesty of downtown Washington, DC, as well as modern luxuries, like award-winning restaurants, shopping and the Virginia wine country.

    We invite you to visit our dedicated Civil War site at and follow all our Civil War movements online through Facebook ( and on Twitter (@fairfaxcivilwar). Also be sure to sign up for our monthly Civil War newsletter that highlights the rich heritage of Fairfax County, VA and the region (

    You and your blog’s readers might also be interested in downloading the educational brochure we created that is available without charge online ( Contact Patrick Lennon at to order complimentary hard copies of the brochure.

    If you are working on any stories in the coming weeks and months related to the Sesquicentennial, please let us know how we can help! Members of the media may contact either Sarah Maciejewski of Visit Fairfax or Melissa Gold of White+Partners PR for interviews, content or related images (contact information is listed below).
