Mewborn to Address Civil War Remembrance Day Dinner

The fourth annual Ball’s Bluff Remembrance Day Dinner will be held Feb. 21 at Algonkian Park Clubhouse.

Friends of Ball’s Bluff Chairman Jim Morgan encourage everyone to attend the dinner and presentation by Civil War historian Horace Mewborn, from New Bern, NC. The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m.

Mewborn will speak on the life and career of one of Loudoun’s most famous Civil War era military leaders—Elijah White.

The present-day “Lige” White will be on hand Feb 21 to honor his great-grandfather. An Episcopal priest, White will offer a benediction before dinner catered by Great Blue Heron.

Morgan is asking FBB members to invite friends, family members or business associates to attend also, noting it will be an enjoyable evening whether or not they are Civil War buffs.

The dinner is the major winter fundraiser to support the organization’s care and maintenance of the Ball’s Bluff battlefield.

Tickets are $45 each. To reserve, contact Dale Hook at 703-352-5900 or
