Civil War armament shown, hands-on exhibit

Roy and Dallas Kennedy are bringing their collection of Civil War weapons, including a miniature cannon, to the Bealeton Library at 3 p.m. Saturday, April 25.

The Kennedys, who will appear in period dress, will talk about the design, use and maintenance of Civil War armaments and allow those attending to examine the pieces closely. The couple is dedicated to preserving our area’s extraordinary history through first person interpretations and vignettes of the poignant days during The War Between the States.

Both are members of North-South Skirmish Association, which encourages the preservation and display of Civil War materials and promotes the shooting of Civil War firearms and artillery. They are also members of the Mosby Players, a group of “living” historians that live in and around the Mosby Heritage Area.

The program is free. Call (540) 439-9728 for more information.
