Genesee Community College Living History/ Reenactment

4-26/28, 2012

Our first event in the 2012 was also the first event ever sponsored by Genesee Community College.  Arranged in conjunction with their year long series celebrating the 150th Anniversary year of 1862, this was their first ever reenactment.  You'd never know it was their first.  Organized by Professor Derek Maxfield and coordinated by Tom Bowers and Simon Taylor, the event ran as smoothly as many much older events.  Below are some of our photos of the event.

Our new wall tent and colors.
