Some shameless free publicity for my friend Larry Reber!

We just got back from a 10-day vacation to Arizona, with stops in Albuquerque and St. Louis on the way home. Here, my younger son Tom wears a Gettysburg Soldiers T-shirt in historic Prescott, Arizona, where many of Teddy Roosevelt’s “Rough Riders” were formed.

Later in the vacation were stopped at Old Town Albuquerque, site of an 1862 skirmish between the blue and the gray.

The skirmish resulted in Albuquerque being the Confederate capitol of the Territory of New Mexico for 36 days.

Larry’s T-shirts are being worn by my family on various trips to Civil War battlefields and other tourist sites, and periodically I will post photos of these sojourns.
