John Divine's Civil War: A Mosby Heritage Area Association Book Release.
Old Waterford School, Fairfax Street, Waterford, VA

MHAA will celebrate the famed local Civil War historian John Divine with the release of a richly illustrated booklet remembering John that includes the complete transcript of what he called "The Summary Interview." Done in Waterford at the historic Samuel Means House in Waterford on President's Day, 1996, John explains as much of Civil War Loudoun as he thought possible in one long sitting. Vintage Divine, tidbits from the interview along with comments by some of John's favorite historians--Horace Mewborn, Bob O'Neill, Bud Hall, Bronwen Souders, and Dennis Frye--will grace the morning.
All attendees will get this 72-page booklet as part of their admission.
