We would like to thank everyone who helped us make this project a reality. First of all, thank you to all of our guest lecturers and various technological help from Patrick Gosetti-Murrayjohn, Jerry Slezak, Jim Groom, Professor Tim O’Donnell, and Dr. Dan Preston. A very special thanks to our favorite University of Mary Washington Reference Librarian, Jack Bales, for putting up with the five of us asking for research help, and actually finding even the most obscure Markers. Very special thanks as well to Frank O’Reilly, an Historian for the National Park Service and expert on the Fredericksburg Campaign, for loaning us books that proved invaluable for the research of many markers.
Also, thank you to all the sites that have acknowledged our work and allowed us to link to them: J. J. Pratts and Dawn Bowen at the Historical Marker Database; Randy Jones at the Department of Historic Resources; and the Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania National Military Park. And last but not least, thank you Professor McClurken for going out on a limb and teaching a practical seminar that we won’t soon forget.
