Front Royal has signs downtown for the Civil War Trail that leads to 10 points of interest during Stonewall Jackson's Campaign in 1862. Plus there are two Civil War Museums to visit, the Belle Boyd Cottage and the Warren Rifles Confederate Museum. Battlefields and cemeteries are all over the state of Virginia.
With one day to spend, it was my plan to concentrate on a family get-together with Glen and Karen Littlefield.
As it turned out, Front Royal was celebrating crafts and wine and I was celebrating seeing my "adopted" daughter, Karen, after a separation of six years. Glen, their daughter, Sherry Lynn, and granddaughter, pretty Penny, arrived in the new touring car, a Mini Cooper.
Sherry and her mom. Sherry's sister, Kelly, was unable to make the trip with her two year old son, Adam. Having two so close in age is like babysitting twins, Karen quipped.
