Upon close study, Mrs Brewer, Mrs Marshall, Mrs Marvel and Melody can all be seen in this fascinating advertisement! Mrs Lane from Calico, California, tells us that this is the little town in which she resides. As my dear sister referenced in her latest letter, there is a planned festival on October 10th and 11th, and this amazing moving picture provides details about said festival. Delightful!
Having checked the website for WorldVideo.TV, I have discovered two movies that were posted after the Civil War encampment at El Dorado Park in Long Beach. They have a little bit of everything, civilians, battle, and music. The movies are a little long, but if you want to see a smattering of the event, this is a good representation. During one of the musical numbers you can even see me and Melody for about 1/4 of a second.
We were invited to be “towns folk” along with about 25 other local reenactors at Calico Ghost Town for a day of shooting video to be used in commercials and other promotional materials. Mrs Marvel put together this film of the commercial shoot along with some photos.
One of our members made this short film after the inaugural Long Beach CA Civil War Encampment in June 2008.
