Living History Event, Historic Hillsborough, NH
The Jones Road Encampment
You step through a time warp the minute you drive over the antique stone bridge on Jones Road.
2nd South Carolina String Band
The 2nd South Carolina String Band plays the songs and music that moved the American people of the early and mid-eighteen hundreds. They play the music that was in the hearts and minds and on the tongues of the citizen-soldiers that made up the ranks of the armies of the North and the South as they marched off to take part in the cataclysmic struggle that was to become the defining event of our nation’s history. excerpt from www.civilwarband.com
