The Tredegar Society of The American Civil War Museum hosted Loose Cannons V last month at the Museum’s Historic Tredegar location in Richmond. The annual event featured a cannon firing as well as beer, wine and live music from the E3 Band. Several Richmond area food trucks were also on hand.
About 40 people joined the Tredegar Society for the 90 minute conversational walking tour to Belle Isle on Saturday, June 6. The Sensory History Tour of Belle Isle Prison Camp began at our Historic Tredegar location, 500 Tredegar Street, and was led by Evan Kutlzer, Ph.D. Kutzler explored the question: Can lessons from sensory history helps us better understand this complex, historic site? Lyle Browning of RVA Archeology offered additional insight. All photos are by Penelope M. Carrington.
