Civil War Re-Enactment
The Boy Scouts and Leaders of Troop #410 are pictured with Abraham Lincoln, following his presentation of the Gettysburg Address, at the Civil War Reenactment in Historic Angelica, NY. The Scouts observed several skirmish reenactments over the course of the weekend, representing the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg from the date of July 1, 1863. As the Scouts of Troop #410 toured the living history stations, they learned about medicine and surgery of the day, interacted with period blacksmiths, postal carriers, and learned the history of the underground railroad through song and story telling. The Scouts were assigned to be a part of the Confederacy, and participated in a mock battle of their own, using imitation muskets under the direction of Confederate generals. Being a part of this experience gave the Scouts of Troop #410 valuable insight into historic Civil War life and times.
