/ AGSAS event. The military portrayed soldiers in winter huts erected
on the property of a local farmer. Civilians portrayed the residents
of the farm and their neighbors and relatives. First person
interaction included a talent show staged in the camp by the soldiers
to which the farm family was invited. Acts included the duel scene
from Hamlet, a minstrel banjo player, and a patriotic tableau
organized by the ladies.

Brooks, AGSAS member and former AGSAS secretary, died
tragically in a sledding accident on December 6, 2002, less
than a year after these pictures were taken. She was only 20
years old. AGSAS held a memorial service to her at McDowell,
as McDowell 1999 was her first event as a Civil War
reenactor and she was so looking forward to McDowell 2003.

We have instituted
an annual award for the young reenactor who most exemplified
the qualities that Grace represented and has contributed
most to the hobby in that year. 2003 winner was Emmanuel
Dabney, with Victoria Kent as runner up.
