Above, 15-year veterans of reenactments, Jacob Manley and his father Richard, Hartwick, show off a Civil War era tent. At right, re-enactor Tim Walker, Cooperstown, holds one of his prize artifacts, a certified unexploded 12-pound cannonball from Little Round Top at Gettysburg. In the heat of battle, soldiers would load cannons quickly, sometimes dropping a cannonball, earning them the name “drops.” Battle simulations at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., free and open to the public. Concert of Civil War era songs performed by Ma’alwyck at 7 p.m., cost $10. Reservations recommended.(Ian Austin/AllOTSEGO.com)
