Fall Festival & Civil War Weekend
Mullica Hill, NJ
October 14, 2023
At the invitation of the 28th Pa Infantry, a small group of 69 Pa soldiers journeyed to Mullica Hill NJ to participate in the annual Fall Festival and Civil War Weekend. It was a wet event, though thankfully it didn’t start pouring until after the battle. Most of the men arrived to camp around 8AM. Some enjoyed breakfast at camp and others had breakfast at the Amish market. Due to the downtime a period baseball game way played between the confederates and the 69th, which we proudly won 4-3. Chris Zimbardi was the MVP! A 4-3 chant even rang out while engaging with dismounted cavalry during the Saturday battle.
One of the great opportunities about joining in with the 28th was that a few of our men had the chance to fire the cannon during the battle. There were excellent volleys and great maneuvering with the space allowed during the fight. A fine time was had by all who attended.
