It is 6:30 and I am sitting here in the dark having a cup of coffee before heading out the door. Civil War Weekend at Governors Island is in full swing. Yesterday was a wonderful day with beautiful August weather and good crowds. Today should be the same. If you live in New York City and are looking for something to do I can’t think of anything better. Yours truly will be doing tours at 11:30 and 1:30 on the history of Civil War officers who once served on the island. It is a deep and fascinating story. We start at the top of Soissons Landing right where one gets off the Manhattan ferry.
