COVID-19 Pandemic

Shelter in Place until June 10: Governor Northam announcement today extends the "stay at home" mandate through the spring.

Wash your hands. Don't touch your face. Carry sanitizer. Stay home or away from group events. Check on family, friends or neighbors who live alone. Stock up on food and necessities, but not at the expense of your neighbors. (The only reason there is a TP shortage is because people have bought far more than they need now)

Check the CDC website for national updates on the pandemic. The Virginia Department of Health site includes the Richmond Department of Health updates.

We also love a good lecture...

Historian James Loewen, author of Lies Across America: What our Historic Sites Get Wrong, presents during a symposium at the Library of Virginia on February 25, 2017, The Civil War: Monuments & Memorials.


  1. Historian James Loewen is one of the great poets I've heard of. To excited to buy his novels. Thank You for sharing this post. This is great.

  2. Really good to hear and read some quite inspirational quotes from him. It was a nice video and had much great content to learn for any of the person related to history.
