143rd Anniversary
of the Battle of Cedar Creek

Middletown, VA

October 19 - 21, 2007

Nine men attended this year's reenactment at Cedar Creek and given that our 'Cookie' was on sick-call we had to leave behind our usual Commissary and rely on our wits for nourishment. We formed Second Company with the 61st NY and, very curious, Sixth Company was comprised of men from our rivals, the National Regiment. We all got along fine and despite some storms on Friday night we had clear and pleasant weather for the weekend. Our Honorary Member, and biggest fan, Ed Yaw showed up on Saturday and snapped some fantastic photos the battle scenario and our morning drill
