Learn Civil War waltzes, and more

As Spotsylvania County prepares to observe the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, residents are polishing their moves on the dance floor–19th-century-style.

The county’s Sesquicentennial Committee invites the public to come learn, and have fun, during Civil War dance lessons offered from 7:30 to 9:30 tonight at The Marshall Center in its historic courthouse area. 

No experience is necessary, and partners are not required.  Organizers suggest making a $1 donation to help cover material costs. 

Lessons are being held every third Friday of the month, and will continue on Sept. 18, Oct. 16 and Nov. 20.

The center is at 8800 Courthouse Road.
