has been a lot of interest from my readers about the Civil War
Re-enacting my family does. I would love to invite those of
you in the Greater Hudson Valley of New York to a re-enactment to see
an event for yourselves.
unit the 56th NY State Volunteer Infantry is participating a weekend
The Farmer's Museum and Brick
House Museum, 850 Route 17K, Montgomery NY
on September 20th and 21st.
The event will be open for spectators on Saturday and Sunday at 10 AM.
You will be able to view Union and Confederate encampments, see a mock
battle complete with artillery, shop at the sutlers, and learn about
life during this volatile time in United States history.
unit that my family re-enacts with is a family unit. This
means that we modify history a bit by allowing families to camp with
the troops. While some families may have followed the troops;
they would not have been able to stay on the same street (camp row) as
the troops. However we can show you what might have been going on with
the wives and children left behind by the war.

with the 56th is all about click here
is our last event for the season and I hope you can get out to see it.
Hope it does not rain!!!
