Cornet and Cannons






For those whose passions lie in Civil War history, and specifically, Civil War musical history, this weekend, in Frankfort, Kentucky, was your dream. It was a full weekend's nod to the Civil War's Sesquicentennial and the music that was birthed from the time period.

Because I LOVE music, and because I'm an 80-year old woman in a 39-year old body, I attempted to attend a few of the musical events. Today's event was an outdoor concert featuring all of the bands with a finale that bombs bursting in air and rockets red glare.

You could almost feel the surreal as old and new, past and present mixed together in one date and time.....
