The museum is located in Hagerstown, Md., and the grounds are just beautiful. If it had not been so cold and windy, I would have taken a photo of the swans in a small lake in front of the complex. (OK, not just cold, but major snow squalls).
In addition to fine art, the museum also has a Civil War exhibit that creates a “museum within a museum,” commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Maryland Campaign of 1862 and the Gettysburg Campaign of 1863. It is really worth seeing!
I met a lot of wonderful people, and even ran into a newspaper editor that I worked with more than 25 years ago! I also had the opportunity to see how beautiful the old part of Hagerstown, Md. is. I would like to go back and just stroll around — when it’s warmer of course!
My next signing is on March 9 in Fairfax, Va., as part of the 150th anniversary of Mosby’s Raid. Very much looking forward to it, and will take lots of pictures!
