3rd Annual Smithtown Historical Society
Civil War Program
May 19 - 21, 2006
Mother Nature was very tempramental the weekend of our annual encampment at Smithtown Historical Society. Continuous rain on Friday forced us to improvise indoors and true to our resourcefullness we managed to cram the infantry inside the Society's large Brush Barn and still give the kids a good show. Our sole attempt to do some firing outdoors only enraged Mother Nature further so we were forced to retreat indoors yet again. We had better luck on Sunday morning when the premises were open to the general public. Despite the unpredictable weather, all the local units participating this season kept a high degree of morale as well their wits.
