Each spring I attend a Civil War Reenactment nearby. There is dancing to various reels and mixers, some singing of patriotic songs and a band playing era music. My friend is a reenactor, and I caught up with him recently. Rick is a private in Company A, Third Regiment Maine Volunteer Infantry. He did a informative demonstration of camp life and a firing of his rifle. The day ended with a reenactment of the famous Pickett's Charge, a reading of the Gettysburg Address and the playing ot Taps. Day is done.
