Fall Effort

I was informed this past week that the Southern Maryland Heritage Area Consortium awarded the Society for the Restoration of Port Tobacco a grant in the amount of $1,000. The money, we hope, will leverage additional funds for the exploration of the Colonial cemetery and search for the first Anglican church in Port Tobacco. On behalf of the PTAP team, I thank the Consortium and its executive director Roz Racanello.

We haven't yet scheduled the work, but I think it will happen in November. Since so many of our readers are interested in the Colonial Period (12 of 35 responses to our latest poll), I think you will find the work interesting. As always, we will post our schedule when we know what it is and we invite your previous experience required.

For those interested in hearing about our findings to date, I will be speaking at the annual dinner meeting of the Charles County Historical Society on Saturday, October 25, 2008: Social Hour 5-6PM, Dinner 6-7PM, me until they throw me out of the joint, the joint being Christ Episcopal Church in Wayside, Maryland. E-mail requests for information to me ( and I'll pass them on to the Society.
