My Fellow Civil War Reenactors,
Greetings to you all! I hope this e-mail finds you all doing well, and enjoying our love of history! With the Greenwood Furnace Civil War Event less than a month away, I wanted to start sending you e-mails to update you on the preparation.
Huntingdon SCI inmates installed new 6 x 6 timbers on the sides of our block sidewalk to reduce a safety hazard, as well as stained and sealed the blacksmith shop. Under the leadership of the guard Ken, they have done an excellent job! We are hoping to get some rain before the event as it is getting very dry here.
As we have done every year, there will be a port-a-potty available for the Confederates to use, close to their camp. We hope to have more Confederates this year, and look forward to having Union Bucktails attend! Ralph Lincoln will also be here portraying Abraham Lincoln!
Showers at our facility are free for all reenactors, along with ice. The lake is warmer than usual from the lack of spring water flowing into it, so you may also enjoy some beach time if desired. The grounds will be mowed and trimmed, and ready for you to enjoy, assuming we get some rain to make things grow.
We are finalizing the schedule of events, and will post here when complete. Please let me know if you would like to do a presentation, and we will add you to the schedule. Feel free to email or call with any questions!
Your Friend at the Park,
