He was previously employed at the Seminary Ridge Museum in Gettsyburg, PA and the Shippensburg Historical Society in Shippensburg, PA.

Kendrick's passion with Pennsylvania during the Civil War lies in the stories of the individual fighting man, where he was from, why he joined and what home was like.  The social and political makeup of the regiments are also a related interest.  Kendrick has a page on Facebook called "Keystoners in Union Blue."
