Well great John,
 
I haven't been down there for the last couple of years and if  you are a 
Civil War nut the event is a thrill.  I've even seen the mayor  speak at this.
 
We'll see if any GDG people make it.
 
Your  Most Obedient Servant,
Peter

Sounds like a great  idea...Feb. 12th at the Lincoln monument??  Keep me
abreast and I've  already put it on my calendar. It would be nice to invite
members.  I  would vote for the Hard Times on King Street but anyplace is
fine.  At  worst it will be you and I and perhaps a few locals I know.  If
we  don't meet before then at least we have a starting time and a  good
event.   Thanks for the invite and heads-up.    John
