“Guest Speaker: Keven Walker, Chief Executive Officer, Shenandoah Valley Battlefield Foundation”
Before the start of the March meeting there will be a presentation by Keven Walker, Chief Executive Officer of the Shenandoah Valley Battlefield Foundation. He will explain the purpose and function of the foundation and tell about preservation efforts and successes in the Shenandoah Valley.
He will also discuss on-going plans to have both Berkeley and Jefferson Counties, in West Virginia, added to the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields National Historic District. Keven will explain what that would mean for Falling Waters and other Civil War sites in West Virginia such as Shepherdstown and Harpers Ferry. He will also review what resources the foundation can provide for projects like preserving the Falling Waters pontoon bridge. At the end of his presentation Keven will be available to answer questions and welcomes interaction with the public.
The meeting will be on Thursday, March 12, 2015 at 6:30 PM at the North Berkeley Public Library, 1255 T.J. Jackson Drive, in Spring Mills. The presentation will be followed by a short business meeting.

For the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, the West Virginia Division of Tourism has created the website “The Child of the Rebellion” covering the Civil War in West Virginia. In it are nine regional videos covering specific areas of the state. This website is very informative and well done. Note that the Battle of Falling Waters is called Hoke’s Run in the Eastern Panhandle video. Although it is aimed to promote tourism, this website contains a tremendous amount of information. Here is the link: http://wvtourism.com/minisites/civilwar.aspx
In addition the new West Virginia Civil War Trails brochure is available on the West Virginia Tourism website to be viewed or downloaded.
