Look for a post next weekend on the subject of Elizabeth Oakes Smith and the Civil War period, here on Dude, Where Am I?. I might be giving a presentation for the historical society on this topic in the spring, or I may have an opportunity to present this information as part of a larger event focusing on Patchogue history. I'm told the presentation may involve me dressing up as EOS in 19th century garb. I'm all for that if someone lends me a really cool dress.
Whatever ends up happening here in Patchogue related to the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, I will post the information and my role, if any, in the event. Meanwhile, for more information about the 150th anniversary of the Civil War go here.
