Civil War Reenactment At The Fall Festival In Mullica Hill, NJ On October 10, 2010

Once again Mullica Hill hosted a Civil War Reenactment at their annual Fall Festival. The weather was just right for the event and it turned out well. This was my second year attending the Reenactment.

The Reenactment took place across the street from a cemetery that included the burial places of actual Veterans of the original conflict of the 1860s:

Here is the resting place of James S. Stratton. He was killed on August 25, 1864 at The Second Battle Of Ream's Station in Virginia. James was only 20 years old.
