Book Release Party

By Julie Duke, Youth Services Manager

The Book Release Party was a drop in program for families.  We had both soldiers and civilians, including ladies in beautiful hoop skirts, for the visitors to meet and greet.  General Grant was also there, and President Abraham Lincoln (aka Dennis Boggs, who to me is the quintessential Lincoln, charming and personable) gave the Gettysburg Address.  My husband, Lawrence, brought some of his collection of original Civil War artifacts, and the Tennessee State Museum loaned us a trunk of hands on CW clothing and equipment.  It was delightful to see the kids dress up in the period clothing.  On the Foundation’s Facebook page, you can see photos of the event,  https://www.facebook.com/wmclf.  I lost count, but  there was about 100 patrons on Sunday.
