Seminar update: March 2018

Van Den Corput Resaca


We have filled the bus for Friday March 9. This means I am not accepting any new checks for reservations. Thank you all for your responses.

Two things to note:

First, the Chickamauga National Military Park has requested that we find some way to reduce the number of cars left in their lot on Friday – they are worried that we fill up the lower lot. Thanks to Jim Ogden’s help, I think we have a solution.

Please park in the History Company Parking Lot, using the spaces on the south side of that building. For those who don’t know, the History Company is located on the east side of LaFayette Road, just north of the park, and just south of the Sav-a-Lot grocery store.  It is within walking distance of the CCNMP visitor’s center. The owner, Louis Varnell, has graciously allowed us to use his space.

I will coordinate with the bus to make sure we check both the History Company Lot and the CCNMP lower parking lot ensure no one gets left behind, but please remember to use the History Company Lot. 

Our Bus is from Royal Charter. We will depart at 8:30 a.m. Friday, March 9. 

Second, The Civil War Trust is currently raising funds to purchase land at three sites in Tennessee – including another parcel of land at Brown’s Ferry. I believe strongly that monies raised by this group should go to land acquisition in the Chattanooga-Chickamauga area, and so I intend to make a donation of $500 towards this project, on behalf of the CCNMP Study Group. Normally I wait until we have a consensus, based on our trip, but in this case I think that acting now is the best course.

Thank you for all your contributions and participation. See you next month.

If you sent a check, and it HAS NOT cleared your bank, contact me.  If you have not yet sent a check, or if you have sent a check but not otherwise contacted me about attending, please send me an email at, or via Facebook. There are usually a couple of cancellations, and I will see what I can do about finding space.

Note that this year, due to some of the places we are visiting, it will be difficult if not impossible to follow us in your own vehicle.
