Civil War Living History: the 43d NY Volunteer Infantry's Visit

The 43d New York Volunteer Infantry set up a Sibley tent behind the library this past Saturday afternoon and presented a Civil War Living History program.

The 43d is a nonprofit, educational reenactment and living history organization that has participated in programs across the eastern United States.

Patrons who stopped by got to see period uniforms, tents and weapons.

The most exciting part of the program was the musket firing. They shot blanks, of course!

Read more about it, and check out the photo of the musket firing, at TheAlternativePress.
