Living History and Modern Military Encampment 

 

Living historians portraying members of the Union Army’s Signal Corps will be encamped at the Pry House during this event. Periodic demonstrations each day will showcase the equipment and operations of the Signal Corps. Active duty members of the modern U.S. Army’s 114th Signal Battalion will also be present to talk with visitors and demonstrate their role on today’s battlefields. Both modern and historical signalmen will work together to present the evolution of the U. S. Signal Corps, which began just before the Civil War and continues to play a vital role in the modern military. Visitors may try on uniforms and equipment and have a chance to send messages.
