Chester Inn

Civil War Christmas

The lawn was aglow with the gentle light from lanterns and campfires last night. It was a quiet ending to a hectic day.  Twice the Yankees attacked the camp – only to be repelled by the Rebs – just a couple of casualties occurred. An afternoon speaker  discussed the role of Albemarle County during the war.  After dining on pork, beans, apples and cornbread, all were treated to an excellent concert of fife and drum music.

    I had a great time re-enacting as a Reb, though I was one of those casualties, somebody has to take a hit. I thank the Inn for allowing us to participate in keeping history alive and honoring both sides in the war. I look forward to performing there again in the future.
