Kudo's to the Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield

Monday in Culpeper.

I had the distinct pleasure of joining many of my fellow FoCMB Board Members, and others in the office of Delegate Ed Scott (R-30th District) on Monday afternoon to take part in a presentation of House Joint Resolution 492, Commending the Friends of Cedar Mountain Battlefield.

After a brief presentation in his office, the group reassembled at the Culpeper Civil War Monument for photos.  See: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Cedar-Mountain-Battlefield/117287908853 for photo and other details.

In addition to Delegate Scott, I would like to thank the other sponsors of HR 492: Delegate Mike Webert (R- 18th District) and Senators Emmett Hanger, Jr. (R- 24th District), Bryce Reeves (R- 17th District) and Jill Vogel (R- 27th District),
