One of the most famous names of Civil War Northern Virginia is Colonel John Singleton Mosby, the Gray Ghost. He stands out among leaders from both sides, celebrated mostfor his raids that captured Union general Edwin Stoughton in Fairfax and Colonel Daniel French Dulany in Rose Hill. William S. Connery brings alive the many dimensions of this fascinating man in a talk based on his recent book.

June 14, 2014 - Save the date for the Sesqui-Centennial of Bishop-General Leonidas Polk's martyrdom atop Pine Mountain, Kennesaw, Georgia, on Saturday, June 14, 2014.  The magnificent Christian hero, often maligned by Yankee historians, as well as by misguided anti-Christian and progressive Southerners, successfully defended the Mississippi Valley from invasion by Grant, commanded half the Confederate army's victory at Chickamauga, stopped Sherman's march toward Alabama, and saved Johnston's Army of Tennessee at Resaca by joining the Army of Mississippi as third corps on the left flank. Only by ignoring his great service and successes, can he be disparaged.

The parade will end at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center which will be hosting the 5th Annual Smoky Mountain Relic Show extravaganza on August 23rd and 24th. There will be a VVA Color Guard Competition, Military Vehicle Restoration Competition, Military Memorabilia Show and special coupon packages for the entire weekend.  The ticket package includes Smoky Mountain Relic Show, Smoky Mountain Opry's Salute to Patriots, Celebrate Freedom Concern (sponsored by Compassion International), Dixie Stampede's Vietnam Veteran's Salute and Sunday Morning Remembrance…  For more information contact: Lynn Hammond,
