Ladies and gentlemen in period attire of the Guilded Age strolled on Saturday* 8-14-2021. Members of the Living History Association fired a six pound cannon at 1 and 3pm. Revolutionary War Re-enactor Leo Tucker, dressed as a U.S. Marine of the Period displayed and demonstrated arms and equipment. Josh Tabor displayed his crafted powder horns and played the violin. The Moodus Drum and Fife Corps led by Drum Major Charlie Woodward entertained the limited crowd* smaller than the tens of thousands estimated to have attended the original event at which the Moodus Drum & Fife Corps also played.
