There’s a very cool reenactment taking place in Swedesboro, NJ on the 25th of September:
The re-enactors will present what life was like for sailors serving onboard an ironclad warship during the Civil War. “Eyewitness” participants will describe daily shipboard routine during the blockade and stirring naval battles in great detail. Uniforms, weapons, accoutrements and models of the “new” ironclads, including a few vessels from the Rebel navy, will be displayed.
Between the Booth play in Williamsburg and this unusual reenactment in Swedesboro, Civil War buffs in the NY/NJ area are having a great month!
