Successful weekennd at Hale Farm

On behalf of General Maffei, thank you to all of the members of Birney’s Division who came out to the event at Hale Farm & Village this weekend. We had 106 troops on the field and the over-all reenactor turnout set a record for this reenactment. Everyone did a fantastic job. You all looked great! A special hats off to our band from the 73rd Ohio. What a thrill it was to march to marshal music and fight with them on the battlefield!

Don’t forget. Our year isn’t wrapped up yet! Two more outstanding events are coming in the next 60 days. Zoar, Ohio on September 19-20 (, and Perryopolis, PA on October 3-4 ( Make sure to get registered!
