Step back in time with the National Watch & Clock Museum in Columbia, Pennsylvania as we present an American Civil War Ball on June 22, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 10:00 PM. It matters not whether you support the Union or Confederacy as we come together to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the burning of the Columbia-Wrightsville Bridge and honor the fighting men and women presented in the Museumís Enlisting Time exhibit. Period attire is encouraged, Blue or Gray.
Musical entertainment will be provided by the Gilmore Light Ensemble. (http://gilmoreslightensemble.com/)
Donít worry about not knowing the proper dance etiquette for the ball, as the Victorian Dance Ensemble will be present to assist all attendees with the dances. The Victorian Dance Ensemble demonstrates and teaches dances of the mid-19th century. Many of the members belong to Union, Confederate or civilian Civil War reenactment units, while others are interested in the Victorian era or vintage dancing. Most of the members of the VDE reside in Pennsylvania but we also have dancers from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey. New York, and Virginia. (http://www.civilwardance.org/)
