150th Anniversary, Wilderness Re-enactment, Video Vignette - May 3, 2014

     Today, whilst on an "embedded journalism" adventure, your blog host met privates Mike Bilder, and Travis Bard from the 26th Pennsylvania Infantry, a unit of the Mifflin Guard. As they explain in this short clip, the Mifflin Guard enjoyed constructing, and sleeping in, a remote defensive position the night before, on the edge of a ravine, overlooking a creek bed. As the viewer can see, their efforts provided an enhanced experience during the 150th anniversary commemoration of the Overland Campaign, being held near Spotsylvania Courthouse, Virginia. The re-enactment continues throughout the weekend.
