1st Annual Hallockville Civil War Weekend

Riverhead, NY

May 15 - 17, 1998

From our June 1998 newsletter...

"Our first annual event at Hallockville has come and gone and there is certainly no doubt that it was a huge success. Many thanks to the men that came out on Friday. They were greeted by almost 1,000 local school students in a non-stop day long living history presentation. No one had time even for lunch! Super job guys! Saturday's events included Dress Parade with George Munkenbeck, the 14th Brooklyn Chaplain, blessing our National Colors. The rest of the day was spent with close to 1,000 spectators, drilling exercises, camp life and a lively skirmish with the 30th Virginia. Sunday’s events were a bit scaled back due to the departure of some units, the rainy weather conditions, and the early scheduled event ending time. But we still did bayonet drill, held a speed firing competition, skirmished, and mingled with the 100 or so spectators that did come out. All in all, a great weekend. Thanks to everyone who participated."
