Heritage Village Museum is presenting a First Person Program Series in February and March, which will bring both local and national historic figures to life for visitors. On Friday, March 24, Dan L. Carr will portray Confederate Major General Lunsford Lindsay Lomax.
Lomax graduated 21st from a West Point class that included Fitzhugh Lee in 1856, and was stationed on the frontier as the South moved toward secession. Hear the story of when J.E.B. Stuart took a bullet from an Indian in 1857, saving Lomax’s life—and how, ironically, Lomax was on Stuart’s left flank when Stuart was mortally wounded during the Civil War. Lomax participated in the Gettysburg campaign, the Overland campaign, and fought Sheridan in the Shenandoah Valley.
General Lomax will be portrayed by living historian Dan L. Carr. Originally from West Virginia, Carr lives in Ashland, KY, and is in his sixth year portraying General Lomax. Mr. Carr served his country in the U.S. Army National Guard 201st Combat Engineer Battalion attached to the 101st Airborne Division from 1972-1978 as a bull dozer operator. After 30 years’ service, Carr retired in 2010 as an Operator from Marathon Petroleum. Dan is a member of the Sons of Confederate Veterans, and associate member of the Black Horse Cavalry Camp #780, and a Kentucky Colonel.
