APRIL 2016 at Ellicott City Station
Meet Billy Yank
Saturday, April 16
12 Noon & 2:00 p.m.
Ellicott Mills was a hotbed of wartime activity with soldiers camped on the heights surrounding the town to provide protection and its own provost marshal's office to recruit new soldiers for the Union cause. Children ages 8+ may be "enlisted" into the Union Army and learn the basic drills a raw recruit, with a hands-on explanation of the equipment an infantryman would carry. Also join staff and see how Union soldiers were trained to load and fire a Civil War era rifled muskets. No reservations required.
