Click here to see the trailer for Stephen Spielberg's Ready Player One, currently in theaters. Look for the DeLorean. (Hint-it's moving quickly and is black and you're more likely to find it if you watch one of the explanatory videos that elaborates on the trailer.) If you want to, stay on the YouTube page and see lots more about Ready Player One. After all, it's a movie about the native online generation.
Great and uplifting film!

H.G. Manning to speak Aug 2 on his book "Unwavering Duty: Jefferson Davis"
Posted by Pam Fuchs
You are cordially invited to join us at 6:30 on Tuesday, August 2, as the Sons of Confederate Veterans hold their monthly meeting in the Museum. The guest speaker, H.G. Manning, will discuss his book, "Unwavering Duty: Jefferson Davis". Signed copies will be available for purchase at the meeting.
The book provides the reader with the final days of the Confederate government as Jefferson Davis and his cabinet members are forced to retreat from Richmond. It then follows the Confederate President through the surrender of the armies of General Lee and Johnston, the federal pursuit culminating in his capture and incarceration at Fortress Monroe. At this point, the book provides the 'what if' of history when the federal government, instead of pardoning Davis under the auspices of the 14th Amendment, decides to place him on trial for treason against the United States.
