by George Wasenko

    Ghostly images emerge from the author’s night walks through Harper’s Ferry, civil war ghosts stroll alongside him through Fredericksburg, the agony of British soldiers is heard in their defeat at Yorktown, and asceticism and sublime chants nurture his spirit at weekend retreats at Holy Cross Abbey. 
    History-buff George Wasenko, a resident of historic Fredericksburg for forty-five years, has immersed himself in Virginia’s bygone days. A living-history lecturer at Hugh Mercer Apothecary Shop in Fredericksburg and a senior member of the British Revolutionary War 64th Regiment of Foot re-enactors, the author has traveled to every corner of Virginia absorbing history and re-enacting historic events. Historic Commonwealth, a compilation of informative and evocative travelogues of the Commonwealth of Virginia’s historic cities and places will be published in early 2016.
