‘Historians to visit Fredericksburg’

Civil War Lodge of Research 1865, one of Virginia’s numerous lodges of Masonic research and education, will meet Saturday, April 1 at one of the Commonwealth’s most historic and cherished lodges. The brethren are headed to Fredericksburg Lodge 4, which already is home to George Washington Lodge of Research 1732, for its next Stated Communication.

As always, the meeting is one event in a busy weekend of sightseeing and fellowship. The lodge will tyle (Virginia spelling) at 10 a.m. Lunch (details TBD) will follow at noon, and at one o’clock everyone will take a tour of the Fredericksburg/Spotsylvania National Military Park and “Mule Shoe,” the site of the craziest hand-to-hand combat of the war.

The following meeting will take place July 8 at Gettysburg (timed to avoid the hectic crowds on both the battle’s 160th anniversary and Independence Day), and I believe I’m going to get to that one.
