Author Chris Hartley kicks off his book tour in a big way

Last Thursday, we at Blair celebrated the launch of Stoneman’s Raid, 1865, with author Chris Hartley at Old Salem Museums & Gardens. This wasn’t just any old launch party–a Moravian brass band played Civil War-era music, guests enjoyed Moravian cookies and wine, and the team at Old Salem raffled off a 1860 cavalry sword replica.

Some of the Blair staff got some great photos of the big event. Enjoy!

Thank you to all the Civil War fans who came out to learn more about Stoneman’s Raid. And many thanks to Old Salem for throwing a great party–we certainly couldn’t have done this without you!
