This Salem Museum Speaker Series talk is presented by noted historian Thomas D. Perry, who is a widely recognized authority on General J. E. B. Stuart and the founder of the J. E. B. Stuart Birthplace. Perry is the author and publisher of over forty books on history and was a featured presenter at the Virginia Festival of the Book in 2012. Special Note About Parking: Be aware, as part of ongoing work to widen and improve East Main Street, the entrance to the Salem Museum is moving slightly to the east (away from downtown Salem). Visitors will use the entrance to Oakey’s Field to get to the Museum. This work is projected to be completed in time for Civil War Saturdays, dependent on the weather.
