Jedediah Hotchkiss Exhibit

I went to the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley today to see the Jed Hotchkiss exhibit. Lucky me -- it was free admission day!

If you are interested in historical maps of Virginia or Civil War battles, it is worth paying the regular admission to see this exhibit. The rest of the museum is nice but I'd seen it before so I spent all my time in the Hotchkiss exhibit, which is temporary.

The print on the maps in generally small. If you don't bring reading glasses, you can use the computer station in the exhibit hall to bring up maps and then zoom in to read the details.

If you go in March or April, plan to spend the day because the gardens next door at Glen Burnie will be open. We like to walk back to the water gardens and sit on a bench, soaking in the peaceful beauty of the pool.
