Itinerary:

•10am – Enterprise Mill for museum, canal ride, $12/person. David K Shockey, ” While we are enjoying the Historic Augusta Canal boat ride and Interpretive Center, my boys and I will be having a War of Northern Aggression living history in the courtyard of the Augusta Canal main center. We will have both Union and Confederate reenactors along with ladies and kids. We will feature different era flags, weapons, uniforms, and food, (yes, hardtack and coffee). We hope to have a bit of drill and the firing of our weapons (blanks only). We would like to invite everyone to participate in the drill as you can get a first hand view of what a soldiers life was like. (We have a nasty Sergeant Major). I am also putting together a list of Shockey’s in the Civil War. So far i have names, units, states, and alternate names used. This is also broken up into north and south. We even have a Shockey who was in the navy.”
