Message from Our President First, I'd like to thank Bert Dunkerly for standing in for me at the June meeting. I heard we had another great speaker, so kudos to Bert for providing some excellent programs for our members during his tenure as 1st vice president. Our Tour in front of the Rev. John Strachan House If you missed our annual field trip, you missed a good one. Bill Welsch organized a terrific tour to many sites in Chesterfield County related to the Bermuda Hundred campaign. Some of the sites we saw have only recently been saved, largely thru the good work of our tour guide, George Fickett. Even if you missed the guided tour, you should still check out these sites using George's guide book, available thru the Chesterfield County Historical Society. These sites are well worth investigating, although you may want to do it in cooler weather as many are deep in the woods. Speaking of preserving sites, check out the Civil War Trust's web site for their newest campaign to save more land at the North Anna battlefield. This is a site in our immediate area which also merits a visitation-and a donation to save more of it. Bruce
