Historical Outings And Other Events For 2016

I am back with a new list for a new year ... albeit a bit late for the new year.  It is 2016 and this year I am returning to Arlington National Cemetery.  The last time I was there was in 2011 for the Funeral of America's Last Great War Veteran Frank Woodruff Buckles and I will be there in 2016 to visit the Grave of Frank Woodruff Buckles.  As always, throughout the year, I will be updating this list as information pours in.

  1. Michael... I came across your old blog where you played the Star Spangled Banner from a Columbia Cylinder. I have what looks like the same cylinder, but am still looking for a player ( our museum may have one). It is number 27505.

    1. Hi Doug. Thank you for the comment. That is a great cylinder ... one of my favorites. I do have a Columbia machine (a Columbia Q Graphophone). I need to replace the belt in order to get it working again.
