Civil War at the Grange - Drummer Boy
This is the first of five videos for this event that were shot by over videographer Superfan, Chris Lauterbach. In his own words... 'This short video is about the Making of a Drummer Boy. I noticed this year the regiment's drummer had been promoted to the ranks, and was training a new drummer. Watch him go through his paces, and then sounds the cadence into battle.'
'Civil War at the Grange - Rifle Firing Demo'
(Chris Lauterbach) 'The 10th Annual Civil War At the Grange was about lots of pieces making up the whole. Instruction, demonstrations, skirmishes, battles, lifestyle, etc. This is the demonstration of what it took to fire a Civil War rifle or musket.'
'Civil War at the Grange - Cannons'
(Chris Lauterbach) 'The 10th Annual Civil War At the Grange was about lots of pieces making up the whole. Instruction, demonstrations, skirmishes, battles, lifestyle, etc. These are demonstrations from The 6th New York Independent Battery and Lee's Light Artillery.'
'Civil War at the Grange - Doin's in the Confederate Camp'
(Chris Lauterbach) 'Visit the Confederate Camp with me. See what's doin', cookin', playin'...'
'Civil War at the Grange - Skirmishes and Battles'
(Chris Lauterbach) 'This is the compilation of two skirmishes that took place plus the day's major battle. The skirmishes each year are never announced. You have to be tipped off in advance or just be in the right place at the right time. The spectator area for the main battle was closer to the Union side this year. The narration takes place by the spectator area. This year both sides were equipped with cannon, so the 'BOOMS' were louder. The clash between the North and the South was partially staged and partially random which made for a great show. It always allows for some ad-libing on both sides. Late in the battle. if you look closely you'll see a Confederate charge that didn't come off quite as planned/ad-libed.'
The trilogy of videos for this event were shot by one of our Superfans, Chris Lauterbach. In his own words... 'The 2018 Annual Civil War encampment at the Bald Hill School House demonstrated many things that were part of a soldier's camp life of. That included drills, manual or arms. marching, firing muskets. It showed how they cooked, what were some of the things they ate, how the uniforms differed. At the end of the day there was even a skirmish between Union and Confederate troops. Units included: 67th NY Co. K. 9th VA Infantry Co. C, and 30th VA infantry Co. B.'

We kicked off our 21st season with our annual march in the Westhampton Beach St. Patrick's Day parade on the eastern end of Long Island. Our friends in the 9th Virginia joined us and this footage was taken by one of our youngest members, Dean Badamo.
