Subject and Venue — Ironic

Began work on a lecture at Navy Museum in Washington for noon May 27 on Matthew Fontaine Maury’s role in the Confederate Navy in keeping the Union Navy from taking Richmond.. He positioned guns on the banks of the James River and mined the channels. The museum for years had a large display of his contributions to navigation and exploration as head of the observatory. Hmmh! Ironic!
