Secession Vote Reenactment

Did you know that the Freeman Store, just across the street from our meeting place, dates back to Civil War Days and is one of only four places left in Virginia where the vote to secede was taken? Three times this Saturday—at noon, 2:00, and 4:00—a reenactment of that vote will be staged. You’re probably no more anxious than I am to head back to Vienna on a day when we won’t have a meeting, but this is a pretty unique event. The Town of Vienna has an extensive  post at Facebook, and here’s a link to the much of the same information and pictures of the site to refresh your memory on the Historic Vienna site.
