Arnold’s Ashes to be Distributed by Civil War Cannon at Fort
Shenandoah on April 13th
My good friend, Dave Arnold (NNHS ’65), died tragically on 21 July 2012, as a result of an automobile accident. In accordance with his wishes, his body was cremated.
It was also his wish that his ashes be distributed in the Shenandoah Valley. Dave loved "the Valley" (as he called it) of Virginia. He grew up in the Tidewater area, but his heart remained in the Valley area of Virginia. It is only fitting that his ashes should find their final home there.
It is also only fitting that his ashes should be distributed by being fired from his very own cannon, which he was having fabricated, so that he could more fully participate with the 1st Virginia, his skirmish group, which is a part of the North-South Skirmish Association.
His final wish will now be fulfilled, thanks to the efforts of his fellow Civil War skirmishers.
On April 13 at 12:00 noon, this ceremony will take place at Ft. Shenandoah at the primary range where the skirmish events are held. Attendees will enter and pass the range keeper's house, and there are signs to the main range.
All are welcome to attend. Dave would have been thrilled to have you watch his cannon being fired on the skirmish field. I can think of no greater way in which to honor his memory.
Fort Shenandoah is owned and operated by the North-South Skirmish Association and is located near Winchester VA.

Oh, WOW! I had no idea! We wish we could make it ourselves, but I think the chances of that are infinitesimally small.....
