Two Events, Two Days: Greenbank Mill and Whitehall, Camp Geiger

As is increasingly the case, this weekend I found myself attending two different Civil War events. Greenbank Mill Civil War Days in Delaware, and Camp Geiger in Whitehall, Pennsylvania.

The event at Greenbank was smaller than last year but still had a nice charm to it. There were Sanitary Commission displays, heritage dancers, Civil War era games, and a nice picnic.






Some of the goods sent to the soldiers.




The ladies had this lovely peach pie stolen by a Yankee scoundrel.









The conspirator, gives himself away. :)



But it was retrieved after a high-speed chase. 
Thank goodness, the rain stayed away until after the event on Saturday. It was a good time and I got to hang out with people I only see a few times a year.




On Sunday, I ventured to the Whitehall event, which was pretty rainy. But I do  have to say, the boys looked pretty spiffy:


I got to see a few people I haven't seen in a while, but I did not watch the battle for very long. Everything was wet and my feet were soaked but everyone seemed to be having a good time.



There are a lot of big events this year, so I hope to be posing more than I have been. I can't wait to see everyone at Gettysburg, let me know if you will be there!

  1. I was at Whitehall, too! :P I wish I could have come to Greenbank with you, but alas, work. I hope Gettysburg turns out to be a good event. I suspect it'll be hot, but maybe we'll have a nice cool, cloudy weekend. :)

    1. I hope it's a complete farb fest and we get to see all of the reenactors from down south and out west. :)

    1. I'm going to the July event in hopes I will be able to see people from other states who are traveling up this way for the big event.
