Andy COMMANDER'S COMMENTS

We had the pleasure of hosting  H.V."Bo"  Traywick,  Jr.   at  our  July
meeting talking on the diary of his great-grandmother's brother, who was
killed at the Battle of Savage's Station during the Seven  Days  Battles
in  1862.   He kept a diary from the time he volunteered to serve in the
3rd Regiment, South Carolina Volunteers, the day after Fort  Sumter  was
fired  on, until the time he was killed.  His diary was with his remains
when his father came to retrieve his remains and bring him back home for
burial.                                                                 

His sister had it published in 1916 for the family and surviving members
of his command, but copies were showing their age,  so  he  re-published
it,  divided  it  into  chapters,  and  added  context from D.  Augustus
Dickert's History of Kershaw's Brigade.  Dickert also served in the  3rd
SC.  It is the dream of almost every member of the SCV to have something
like this, even one letter, written  by  their  ancestor  but  few  such
documents have survived for most families.                              

On  October  13th  at  2:30  PM  we  will  dedicate  a  new cohort of 50
headstones along Confederate Avenue in Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, VA.
So  far,  143  graves  in  the cemetery have been sponsored by the camp.
Please join us for this important landmark in the service of the Camp to
the  memory  of  our ancestors.  A link to a list of these headstones is
provided.  Oct.  13, 2019 Dedication: a Virtual Cemetery - Find A Grave

OUR JULY SPEAKER


Teaching the Civil War Era in Museums
by
Stephanie Fitzwater Arduini 

When people think of museums, many remember a student  field  trip  they
took  to  a  local  institution.   Students  and  educators remain a key
audience for museums, which requires  staff  to  consider  a  wide  (and
sometimes  surprising)  range  of factors when developing a program that
will be as impactful and meaningful  as  possible.   Join  the  American
Civil War Museum's Director of Education, Stephanie Arduini, to discover
how the museum approaches what they design for students  and  educators,
including  how  they balance addressing challenges educators face in the
classroom with fostering student  curiosity  about  both  the  past  and
present.                                                                

Stephanie Fitzwater Arduini is the Director of Education at The American
Civil War Museum in Richmond, VA.  Over the last  17  years  working  in
museums, her experience includes work at a the Pacific Science Center in
Seattle, Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation here in  Virginia,  and  Mackinac
State  Historic  Parks in northern Michigan, and volunteer work with the
National Park Service and the National Air and Space Museum.  She has  a
Master's  degree  in museum education from George Washington University,
and a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Michigan.
