This is from last summer but I just came across it. Great footage of Gettysburg 150, until the final second.

To all former members of the 36th VA Infantry Company B
and to all of our other Reenactor’s friends of the 36th VA
whom we acquired through the years

<>><><><><><><><><><><><><><><<><><

Tom Place & myself had an idea to gather all our former 36th VA & 22nd VA Bn members, etc – for one last hurrah – a reunion of our former members & ole reenacting buddies to form a ghost battalion of sorts, to attend the 150th anniversary battle of Cedar Creek, (of which the 36th VA actually took part in), the last major battle in the Shenandoah Valley.

I like to ask what kind of interest that we may have, in attending this reenactment, and just kicking around some ideas.

No politics, no strings attached – just a bunch of us old veteran reenactors to do one last hurrah, and kick around the old camp fire, tell some stories, burn some powder and remember how it felt to trample the fields of ole’ Virginia….

Just one last hurrah for the last battle in the valley.
No details to give other than this reenactment battle will happen 150 years later on the actual date…

So come on you veterans, send me back a email, and give me your thoughts…..

It would be great to get the old gang back together, to enjoy the last major battle in the Shenandoah Valley…..

Leave your comments on our Facebook page for the Echoes Through Time Learning Center

But please send me a EMAIL regarding your interest

Registration is $15.00 by March 15 – and only goes up in price from their – with a max $$ in October of $40.00 for walk ons

So think about it, and get back to me ASAP

At Director@EchoesThroughTime.com
Thanks

Echoes Through Time shared Buffalo Civil War Roundtable's photo.

We share the grief expressed below. The Lemke family have supported our mission of education and preservation from the very beginning of our efforts, with innumerable hours spent teaching and living the history of our country.

God Speed DIck, "The Poiltician", "The Senator".
Our love and support is offered to "Miss Pat", and the Lemke family.

We are saddened to learn of the passing today of our good friend Dick Lemke. "The Senator", as he was affectionately known among the local Civil War community, was for many years a fixture at just about every reenactment and event alongside his dear wife Pat and other members of his family. His portrayal of Virginia Senator Robert M.T. Hunter was always a treat to witness and our local events just have not been the same in recent years without his trademark political "speechifying". Our thoughts and prayers, and sincere condolences, go out to DIck's family at this very difficult time.

Eternal rest, grant unto him O Lord
and let perpetual light shine upon him
