Burchfield 2012

Thanks to Jim Pace and the Union Volunteers Fife and Drum Corps, we were invited once again to this wonderful venue for their annual Civil War Days Living History.  As with last year the venue was delightful, the crowd friendly and interested and our hosts, the West Seneca Historical Society, were more than just gracious.  Check the link below for the outstanding video done by Niles Dening Photography.  Many of the photos on this page were also courtesy of him.

That's Jim Pace with the fife and Brian Seibel on the drum...The Union Volunteers Fife and Drum Corps and the organizers of the event.

Mr. Dening took several photos of our tools and then Photoshopped them with a filter for this outstanding look.

 

These are just some of the volunteers who help to run Echoes Through Time Learning Center and Museum.  Its the ONLY Civil War Museum in the Western New York area.  From left to right we have: 1Sgt Ray Ball Co. A US Engineers, Hospital Steward Barb Lawrence of Reynolds Battery 1st US Light Artillery, Tom Place formerly of the 36th Virginia Infantry now the proprietor of Echoes Through Time and on the far right is Pvt. Andy Tripp.  Here he's dressed as a member of the 4th Texas but also a member of Co. A US Engineer.

 

 

Pvt. Parker Ball our youngest recruit hustling as always.  Even though he's unable to fire a weapon legally yet, he's already very well versed in the school of the soldier.  Pvt. Tripp is in the background and appears to be a dejected prisoner.

 

 

Yet another one of Mr. Dening's photos.  The man has skills.

 

 

Tom Schobert and Hank Pogodzinski have one of the finest medical Corps impressions in the area.  Both are veteran reenactors who more than know their way around a battlefield.

 

Pvt. Tripp has one of the very finest Confederate impressions around.  For a young man he has really taken an interest in perfecting the hobby.
