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
Both events are free and open to the public.
