No News?

Since Jim didn't have any news today I'll submit a report.

We are putting the finishing touches on our museum exhibit, Remembering Lincoln that will be installed in the Port Tobacco Courthouse Museum on March 10th. This exhibit of Lincoln Memorabilia was created by a student, Amanda Manahan, and myself using a collection donated to the Heidelberg University library 35 years ago. Heidelberg also provided the funding for the exhibit construction.

There will be a sneak preview exhibit opening from 7 to 9 pm on Tuesday, March 10th. All are invited to come see the exhibit and mingle with the Heidelberg students, the Port Tobacco Archaeological Project crew, and members of the Charles County Archaeological Society. Admission is free and we will provide some light refreshments.

The Charles County Archaeological Society will hold a brief meeting during the event.

This is the first official collaboration between Heidelberg University's Center for Historic and Military Archaeology, the Port Tobacco Archaeological Project, and the Society for the Restoration of Port Tobacco.

The public's next opportunity to view the exhibit will be in May when the museum opens for the season.

I'll post a copy of our exhibit brochure in the upcoming days.
