CVBT 2013 Annual Meeting, May 3

The Central Virginia Battlefields Trust is pleased to announce its annual meeting which will coincide with the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Chancellorsville.

On Friday, May 3, 2013 noted authors and historians Robert K. Krick and Gary W. Gallagher will join us to discuss Chancellorsville and the pending clash at Gettysburg. Bob's presentation will focus on Lee's direction of Chancellorsville, his greatest victory of the war.  Gary will present "Looking toward Gettysburg's 150th Anniversary” How Important Was the Battle in 1863?" CVBT hosted an event with Bob and Gary during the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Fredericksburg that was attended by almost 200 people! Several of their books will again be offered for sale in the banquet hall, and both Bob and Gary will be happy to inscribe them. The duo will be conducting a Chancellorsville tour on May 1-3, and are adding our annual meeting to their agenda. Details about their tour, which is not a CVBT event, can be seen at: 



The annual meeting will be held at the Fredericksburg Hospitality House Hotel, 2801 Plank Road in Central Park. It will include a delicious buffet dinner and a premium brand cash bar. Please join us at this special anniversary event. It is an opportunity you will not want to miss! For those of you who may be interested, CVBT is holding a block of guest rooms at the Hospitality House Hotel, which will be available for the rate of $85.00 per night, for both single and double rooms. Please note as well that the ground floor of the hotel is "pet friendly."

The National Park Service (NPS) will be providing a wide range of events during the anniversary. Rather than providing its own tours in conjunction with the annual meeting CVBT is encouraging everyone to attend the NPS events. To accommodate our members who plan on attending the NPS programs, our room block will begin on Tuesday, April 30 and run through Saturday, May 4. When the NPS program has been formulated you may view it at Fredericksburg & Spotsylvania national Military Park
