Lancaster PA Civil War Encampment
September fifteenth turned out to a beautiful pre-autumn day for the recreation of a Civil War Encampment on the grounds of the Lancaster County Historical Society, at the corner of North President and Marietta Avenue.
The pungent smell of campfires burning permeated the cool morning air.
The "Mayor" was in attendance in full top hat and tails!
A military drill practice included a musket firing demonstration.
The Lancaster Civil War Round Table was in attendance. They meet on the second Thursday of every month at 7:00 pm (except December) at the Lititz Public Library, 651 Kissel Hill Rd. in Lititz. Meetings are free and open to the public. Donations to defray the cost of speakers (authors, historians, battlefield guides) are appreciated, but not required.
A lively fife rendition of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" reverberated through the field!
This young lady insisted that I wait until she put away her camera so that my shot wouldn't be historically inconsistent. (Unfortunately a car on Marietta Avenue sneaked into the photo anyway!)
