Year in Review

The second year of the Sesquicentennial began unusually enough with us helping out a group of NYU students in shooting a Civil War themed film at the Grange entitled the Rapture. In March, we marched in a rare trifecta of St. Patrick’s Day parades ending with the grandest of them all in NYC. School programs, there were many as evidence by nine shown on this album. In May, we, and others in our local reenacting community honored General Regis de Trobriand with a special ceremony at his gravesite on Long Island. We returned to Neshaminy in April, Gettysburg Living History in July, and Remembrance Day in November. However, we skipped Cedar Creek in favor of attending the 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Antietam in September. Your Correspondent flew out west to witness (as spectator), the other big 150th Anniversary, that of the Battle of Shiloh in Tennessee. Apart from Antietam 150, the most memorable event was our 4th Annual Civil War Weekend at the Grange that fell at the end of October, less than 48 hours before the arrival of Hurricane Sandy. We managed to provide a great program to the public on Saturday before skedaddling on Sunday morning. Ironically, our 19th century training and prepared us well for those ensuing weeks when our supplies of candles provide invaluable.
