We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.
- T.S. Eliot
Welcome to Ten Roads! This blog is intended to be a place for me to share my (generally Civil War-related) thoughts and experiences. I try to update once a week at the very least. All comments and readers are greatly appreciated!

An update on the Cyclorama
At the end of my shift at the VC on Friday, one of my managers took me upstairs to check out the Cyclorama. They were beginning to install the diorama part of it, including a cannon that is in line with the other cannons in the painting. The actual restoration is pretty much complete and now it's just getting the rest of it set up and the room/hallways/stairs ready for visitors. It's set to open September 26th and put plainly, it is going to be awesome. We've been giving out coupons for 50% off a New Birth of Freedom/Cyclorama ticket and they have no expiration date, so if you find yourself at the Visitor Center before September, make sure you track one down so you can save a bit when you return for the multi-media experience.
