reenactors at the exact place where the 26th NC came across the mile wide field during the Pickett-Pettigrew charge of
July 3. Here we are charging up to the last fence before the final approach to the "stone wall". If you look closely
the person on the far right is Keith Sawyer and beside him giving a Rebel Yell is Mike Ross. 90 members of the 26th
NC did a living history for the National Park Service this past October.

Roanoke Island Festival Park Civil War Days. Round Table and 26th NC members recently assisted the Roanoke Island Festival
Park with their Civil War Weekend on Feb. 18-19 2006. We had 9 members that manned a OBCWRT booth over the weekend to
tell people about the RT and answer questions about the articles at our booth and about the WBTS in general. We also
had uniformed members that performed firing demonstrations and demonstrated battle lines and drilled Park visitors.
Pat and Kieth Sawyer set up a period encampment and Miss Pat demonstrated period cooking over an open fire with period cookware.
By the way, this Lady can cook!!! That apple pie was fantastic.
Miss Pat stoking the fire preparing to put on the biscuts. Miss Pat feeds us well. What a cook!!!
