2014 Plan & Schedule
 
Friends of Cedar Mountain has plans for 2014. There is much to be done. As the year progresses we hope to schedule a date to accomplish each section of our plan. Once a date is scheduled it will be posted here.
 

26 April (Saturday) - Annual Membership Meeting

 The meeting is being held at 6:00 PM at the Friends of Cedar Mountain Headquarters located on General Winder Road.   The Annual meeting will consist of a report of 2013 activities as well as an update on continuing battlefield improvement.   During this time special recognition will be given to Culpeper Citizens and others who were instrumental in preserving  Cedar Mountain Battlefield before the Friends group was chartered.

The program will consist of Frank M. Mixson sharing stories from each year of his participation in the War Between the States, including his enlistment and the Battle of Sharpsburg, with emphasis on the Wilderness/Spotsylvania campaign.  Mixson served with Hagood’s 1st South Carolina Volunteers fighting in the Maryland Campaign, Fredericksburg, Chickamauga, the Tennessee Campaign, Wilderness, Spotsylvania, the Siege of Petersburg and Appomattox.

Following the program, guests are invited into the house for a wine and cheese reception and tour of the FOCMB headquarters.

Please join other Friends of Cedar Mountain at 6:00 p.m., Saturday, April 26, 2014.  Cost for current members is $5; non-members $12, (or, you may pay your current dues [$25.00] at that time).

Advance reservations are appreciated but not required
 

 6 May (Tuesday) - Give Local Piedmont Day

On May 6th 2014, from 12:00 a.m. to 11:59:59 p.m., our nonprofit is participating in Give Local Piedmont. Every donation will be stretched further if you donate to our organization through Give Local Piedmont. The Northern Piedmont Community Foundation is sponsoring this event as part of a nation-wide program called Give Local America and our organization will benefit from bonus funds available for participating organizations. We hope you will consider supporting us on May 6th.

Leveraged giving opportunity!

All May 6th receipts through Give Local Piedmont will be matched by supporters of the Cedar Mountain battlefield on a dollar-for-dollar basis to effectively double the value of each donation.  Even more exciting is that all receipts will be dedicated exclusively to purchase a Civil War Artillery piece, a cannon, for the Cedar Mountain Battlefield.  Addition of a historic cannon will cap a multi-year effort to restore the battlefield to a condition as it appeared on the August 9, 1862 day of the battle.
