Jim Morgan passes along great news with regard to the drive to replace the Ball’s Bluff marker. At this time the Friends of Ball’s Bluff (FoBB) have raised the $1630 needed to fund the replacement. FoBB awaits final approval of the text from the DHR board, which meets on March 19. Manufacture and installation may take a few months. FoBB anticipates all will be in place by June, but will pass along details as time permits.
This campaign went much more quickly than any of us had anticipated. We on the Friends of Ball’s Bluff board deeply appreciate the generosity of the Civil War and historic preservation communities. Again, my sincere thanks.
Also a reminder of the Ball’s Bluff Remembrance Day Dinner on February 22. Check nvrpa.org for details.
