mr Hargis, sir, i most certainly appreciate your reply. it felt extremely good to hear from a person that has been such a strong motivation and inspiration in my reenacting world for so long. God Bless you, Glen. yes you are indeed correct in regards to mr rolfe and his lovely spouce pocohontas, however, here at the base the only indication he was here is a sign out towards ft crawford, at the tip of ft eustis. ft crawford serving as a deterent against gen mc clellans forces in 62. the fort never saw action and was only manned by a garrison of 67 soldiers and a few artillery peices, due to the fact most of the action was taking place further up the peninsula, such as union balloon obervation posts at lee hall.... as for ft monroe, well i too fell in love with the place. the structure is extrodinary, and LT R E LEEs former residents is occupied by a current LT COL. as a matter of fact the same LT COL i had the privelage along with cadets from old dominion in leading a battlefield tour on prospect hill, fredricksburg. i was asked to give a talk on gen franklins actions at prospect hill.. on my off duty time, and weekends i usually get a hotel room in richmond and walk the seven days fields, gaines mill, malvern hill, grapvine bridge, and even glendale... richmond has done a great job considering the urban sprawl in preservation. men of the 1st, i will most definitly keep all informed as to my constant pursuit of preservation through interpretation!!! thank you Glen, meant the world....
