August 2010 issue
Our August 2010 issue takes us inside some most interesting places. At a reenactment of the Battle of New Market 146 years after the fact, we get a vivid taste of that experience and some insight into this increasingly popular hobby. Another Virginia tradition—Galax’s Old Fiddlers’ Convention—is five days of pickin’ and grinnin’ that draws thousands to the southwestern corner of the state. We profile Leni Sorenson, Monticello’s African American research historian, who educates us about the perfect BLT. Also, Blue Ridge Farm, boatbuilder Steve Zimmerman, up-and-coming fashion designer Jules Reid, manatees, a gardening dream and a gardening nightmare, and much more.
