Civil War Weekend, Amherst Museum, #3
What a great partnership between the Civil War Re-enactors, the Amherst Museum and the Victorian Dance Society of the Amherst Museum ! The many hours of meetings resulted in a great weekend..... In addition to giving dance demonstrations, our dancers participated in an evening camp dance on Saturday and acted as villagers during the afternoon skirmishes. Our members strolled through the village, until the first shots rang out at which time all scampered to safety. One "villager" was surprised during a "shave and a haircut" in the Village Barbershop and came running across the meadow to safety with a face full of shaving cream.
