February 25-26, 2006
The 3rd Annual "RAM JAM"
97th PA Regimental Ancient Muster
at Fort DeSoto Park, Pinellas County, Florida.
The 97th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry Re-enactment Regiment, in conjunction with our American Civil War Weekend Encampment and Historical Battle Re-enactment at the Fort DeSoto Park located in Tierra Verde on the Southern-most tip of Pinellas County, Florida, we will be hosting a National Fife & Drum Muster event. All Ancient Musicians (Union, Confederate, Civilian, Revolutionary War, etc...) are invited and encouraged to attend. Participants will get to play, demonstrate, and share their music with other civil war musicians from around the country. There will be informal sessions as well as formal, marching opportunities. Come join the fun! A limited number of modern camping spaces will be available on a first contact, first served basis. Contact us for your reservation now because modern campers showing up on the day of the event without a reservation will not be allowed to camp. The 97th PA will provide firewood, hay, and ice. We encourage re-enactors to arrive on Thursday, February 23, 2006 to participate in our 'school day' program for 1000 school children in Pinellas County. We would like to ask participating musicians to reserve their spot for this event.
