Last week, The Civil War Navy Sesquicentennial participated in the 23 April “Civil War at Sea” Conference at the Navy Memorial in Washington, D.C. The event was co-sponsored by the Naval History and Heritage Command and the Washington Examiner. Here is a small sampling of photos from the event:

A VERY big thank you to Bruce Guthrie for supplying the photographs for the event. You can see all the photos at Bruce’s website HERE.
I would also like to thank Taylor Kiland, Meredith Stencil, and Mark Weber for helping to organize the event. It was a lot of fun, and we certainly look forward to working more with the Navy Memorial in the future.
