Camptown Shakers And Civil War Skirmish In Wilmington, Delaware On August 28 and 29, 2015

The Greenbank Mills And Philips Farm (website: http://www.greenbankmill.com) and the Wilmington And Western Railroad Station (website: http://www.wwrr.com) teamed up for the Civil War Skirmish that took place on 8-28-2015 and 8-29-2015. Two members of the 1800s music band Camptown Shakers appeared on both days.

The first two videos and first two photographs are from the evening of August 28, 2015 ...

Here is "Ring De Banjo" (as you can see, it was totally dark at this time in the evening):
