Winter Quarters Living History
Endview Plantation, April
Richmond, VA, February 2002
Joint 16th Virgina / 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.

In Memoriam:
Grace 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. Click here for Grace's memorial page on the McDowell website.

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.
