The 9th KY US Infantry (reenacting unit) is coming back! Their working Civil War camp is complete with soldiers and civilians. Unit drills, discussions of weapons, Sunday service, and a three round volley at the Tompkinsville National Cemetery (a.k.a. Old Soldiers Cemetery) are always part of their visit. But this year they've added a unique and rarely represented element to the weekend…a Civil War era wedding! This is the real wedding of members of their unit, opened to the public for educational purposes. (Period attire is not required to attend the wedding. However, period clad individuals will be seated first.) The reception will feature period music and dancing. Weather permitting wet plate photography will be demonstrated.
