A Civil War Christmas - Guided Tours to raise funds for Historic Fort Wayne, Detroit, MI - Dec. 7, 2013
Several members of the 5th joined fellow historians to bring the Civil War to life at one place actually used during the war in Michigan, Historic Fort Wayne. We had a great time living a Civil War life as guided tours came through to see Christmas traditions from the era demonstrated. After the tours ended, we had a dinner cooked for us and several spent the night of camaraderie in the old barracks.

Guard Mount

Even at Christmas, the work of the army continues. Here, under the watchful eye of Sergeant Jeremy Buschlen, three men prepare to go on guard. The three guards are (l to r) Ron Clary (4th MI), Austin Motte (SPM), and Chris Wooley (5th MI).

24th Retreats

Here we see a shot from late in the July 1 fight. The 24th Michigan, after multiple stands, retreats toward Gettsyburg. There are very few officers left and the ranks are shot down. Colonel Morrow carries the flag himself. He'll soon be wounded in the head and be left in the town of Gettsyburg. This a great shot of specific history being portrayed by the regiment we were in.
