We have some pictures of our 2011 Sesquicentennial Reception on our facebook page if you would like to look at them. Our facebook is “The First White House of the Confederacy” or you can go to our website which is www.firstwhitehouse.org and click on the link to facebook at the upper left hand corner. We would love to have you view these.

As you can tell, a great time was had by all!!! Thanks for sticking with me readers, as I have not blogged for a while, having been out of town,etc. Speaking of “sticking” did you know two stamps on the Civil War are available at the Post Office?

These depict the firing on Fort Sumter and the Battle of Bull Run (we call that First Manassas!). These come in sheets of 12 and have a “yankefied” version of why the war started. The Fort Sumter and Bull Run stamps are the first in a series commemorating the 150th anniversary of The War. They are, and I quote, “part of efforts across the country that will pay tribute to the American experience during the tumultuous years from 1861 to 1865.”
