Cannon Fire over Old Town ~

fortknox2001.jpg

Members of Co. B, 20th Maine were hosted by the OTHS History Department to deliver a rendition of Civil War life to the students, most of the students were receptive to the reenactors and many took part in the learning centers. Some students needed to be told not to double-task and shut off their I Pods.

6th Maine Battery was present and as usual, set off several car alarms. At the previous encampment, the police and fire department showed up reporting that a home on Rt. 43 blew up twice. At this encampment the cannon caused a 90 year old woman to have heart palpitations, and firing of the cannon was ceased after firing two rounds on Friday. School officials and teachers praised the knowledge of the presenters.
