The 150th anniversary of 1st Manassas has come and gone and is in the history books as one of the hottest weekends on record in Virginia. Now that the reenactment is over, the 2nd Mississippi battleshirts more than likely will just take up storage room in your closest. Instead think about donating your specialty impression battleshirt to Ben Lomond Historic Site, a 1st Manassas Confederate field hospital exhibit. The emphasis at this museum is a hands-on experience and the more garments that people can try on, the better.

Give your custom battleshirt a second life as an educational tool. Plus any donation to the museum will be tax-deductable.

If you would like to donate, please e-mail me at

Take care,
