Our August 2010 issue takes us inside some most interesting places. At a reenactment of the Battle of New Market 146 years after the fact, we get a vivid taste of that experience and some insight into this increasingly popular hobby. Another Virginia tradition Galax s Old Fiddlers Convention is five days of pickin and grinnin that draws thousands to the southwestern corner of the state. We profile Leni Sorenson, Monticello s African American research historian, who educates us about the perfect BLT. Also, Blue Ridge Farm, boatbuilder Steve Zimmerman, up-and-coming fashion designer Jules Reid, manatees, a gardening dream and a gardening nightmare, and much more.
