To tell the truth, I don't remember the Greenbrier Board of Education asking our opin- ion about anything pertaining to the consolidation of the junior high schools in Greenbrier County! Now, I know I am losing my memory, because I know the Green- brier Board of Education would never take it upon themselves to take on such a task without the ma- jority of Greenbrier County behind them. This is such a major decision, I know everyone in our county must have been consulted. If only I could remember... Patrlcla Wlckline Williamsburg Dear Editor: I have received and distributed the issues of the Mountain Messen- ger which contain the stories written by our winning Monroe County chil- dren for the Young Writer's Contest. Thank you for your interest and will- ingness to print these entries. I know it will mean a lot to each child to see his or her writing in published form. Who knows? Perhaps your ef- forts will spawn an undertaking on the part of one of these children to become a writer by profession. Our school system appreciates your desire to highlight the work of Monroe County students. I wish you and your publication much future success and growth.

The Battle of Lewisburg: May 19&20 By John Mcllhenny The roar of artillery and rattle of musketry will be heard once again in the streets of Lewisburg during the weekend of May 19 and 20, when the city sponsors its first re-enact- ment of the Civil War battle fought here in May 1862. A full weekend of exciting and educational Civil War events are planned to mark the 128th Anniver- sary of the Battle of Lewisburg. Both Union and Confederate reenactors will establish authentic civil War camps in Lewisburg in which the public may observe demonstrations of camp life and exhibits of uniforms, weapons and equipment. Besides the artillery, infantry, and cavalry displays, there will be a field hospi- tal, blacksmith, signal units, authen- tic sutlers, and a "Mathew Brady" photographer. Pennsylvania's Com- monwealth Ancients and CSA Music of Virginia will provide Civil War era music in both camps. Dance Master Dan Stanton and the Looking Glass Dancers of Baltimore will present demonstrations of period dan(~es at Carnegie Hall in Lewisburg. The General Lewis Inn will be the scene of an 1862 fashion show and con- certs by the 11th North Carolina Band. Several of Lewisburg's historical buildings will be open and staffed The living history presentations start at noon on Saturday, May 19. The first battle scenario is at 4 p.m. when the 44th Ohio captures the Confederate artillery in back of the General Lewis Inn. A parade along Washington Street starts at 5 p.m. followed by a second battle reenact- ment on the hill behind Greenbrier Center. On Sunday, May 20, starting at 10 a.m. there will be a memorial ob- servance at the Confederate Ceme- tery and a camp church service. Both events will have Confederate and Union participation with music appropriate to the occasion. A con- cert by the 11th North Carolina Band will begin at 1 p.m. in the Southern camp behind the West Vir- ginia School of Osteopathic Medi- cine. The grand finale, a reenact- ment of the Battle of Lewisburg, will start at 2 p.m. at the site of the Con- federate camp. Closing ceremonies are at 3 p.m. All profits from the reenactment will go towards the restoration and preservation of an 18th Century Conestoga wagon presented to the City of Lewisburg by Edwin Coffman.
