Civil War Reenactment, Chase Farm, Lincoln, Rhode Island

For over 25 years, I have helped with packing, driving, setup, take-down, and more for historical reenactments, related to Revolutionary War, French and Indian War, Civil War, and Roman Legion. I do not participate in the actual reenactment, since I am busy working on my applique pursuits while the reenactments are going on. (Original blog -- Applique on the Go.)

The following photos show some of the scenes in the Union camp (North) representing the Civil War during a recent reenactment in the state of Rhode Island.

A deceptively tranquil scene. Beyond the hill is the busy Union camp. (Notice the Union flag at the top of the hill, left center.)

The Confederates (South) are coming!

Margaret, the first thing to say that the photograph of the head is beautiful, idyllic place. The photos show us remind me that I've seen movies about the Civil War, I love this type of recreation. A beautiful post. Greetings.

I have never been to a reenactment and this year I have missed one in July and will miss Hastings as I won't be free over that week-end and I'm very upset that timing is always wrong for me!
You must a lot of fun helping out as most volunteers are so keen!

LOVE reading this. I am interested in reenactments and know several folks who do those. I am of course, more the Confederate type as a Southern girl bred and born.

I must be an wonderful experience to be involved in something like this or to attend and watch such a re-enactment. A time machine in itself.
