Despite the best efforts of the weather, we’re happy to say that the annual Civil War Weekend was a big success!  Rain and wind hit the encampment on Sunday, but as one members of the 10th PA Reserve reenactors said “The Civil War didn’t stop just because it rained.”

Still, we estimate this was one of our biggest turnouts ever.  The 10th PA Reserve soldiers and their Confederate counterparts battled it out in several impressive skirmishes, while the ladies served refreshments and taught visitors about food, clothing, home life and the “lady spies” of the Civil War.  A Wild Bill Hickok impersonator even showed up!  Thanks to the reenactors for a fantastic weekend – we’ve posted a few pictures to the Stone House Facebook page; more will be added later this week.  Hope you were able to make it out – don’t miss the next one!
