      ASHE COUNTY MARKS 150TH ANNIVERSARY
      OF START OF CIVIL WAR WITH PROGRAM
      AT MUSEUM OF ASHE COUNTY HISTORY,
      SAT. AUG. 27 10:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M.
      Then 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Buffalo Bed & Breakfast

      Reenactors from the 26th Regiment of North Carolina Troops and the 37th
      North Carolina Regiment of North Carolina Troops will be setting up a
      one-day living history camp at the Museum of Ashe County History at 301 Main
      Street (The Old Court House) in Jefferson on Saturday, August 27 from 10:00
      a.m. – 3:00 p.m. Both regiments formed two companies from Ashe County during
      the war, with both companies designated as Company A. Both regiments and
      those Ashe County companies suffered greatly during the war, losing most of
      the men who joined early in the war to combat and disease in campaigns that
      stretched from New Bern, N.C. to Gettysburg, Penn. and then on to the
      surrender of Robert E. Lee’s army at Appomattox in April, 1865.
      The reenactors will be presenting camp life, including school of the
      soldier, some marching drill, and musket firing demonstrations. There will
      be talks describing the uniforms, equipment, flags, and tactics used by both
      sides during the war.
      That evening the reenactors will move to Buffalo Tavern Bed & Breakfast at
      958 West Buffalo Road where Nora Brooks will recreate her impression of
      Mildred Childe Lee, the daughter of Robert E. Lee who lived into the 20th
      century. She will be in character, meaning she will know nothing of modern
      life, but will be able to give attendees insight into the character of her
      father and life in the late 19th century. Ms. Brooks will start her program
      at 6:00 p.m. on the front porch of the Buffalo Bed & Breakfast. Please bring
      your own lawn chairs. Parking will be in the field adjacent to the bed and
      breakfast.
      Both events are free and open to the public.
