The Battle of Shelburne Crossroads [SIV444]



5/21/16: Last weekend the explosive sounds of a cannon, muskets and charging cavalry horses rang out from a meadow at the crossroads of Harbor and Bay Roads in Shelburne. For three days the Champlain Valley Historical Reenactors hosted the Vermont Civil War Weekend and Encampment to teach spectators about the nation's history. Eva put on her best bonnet and got some tips about life in the 1860s.

Music: Rumblecat, 'Til the Neighbors Shout, "Lonesome Soul"
