26th annual Battle of Plymouth reenactment

Posted by Bruce Long on April 14, 2016 at 7:04pm 0 Comments

The annual Plymouth living history activities will be held April 22-24, 2016. Bus tours ($30) are scheduled for Friday and Saturday. The land-sea skirmish is planned for Saturday at 1:00 and a battle reenactment at Fort Compher is scheduled for Sunday at 2:00.

Any interest among presenters and re-enactors?

Is there any interest among presenters and re-enactors in organizing a living history day in Camden featuring the Battle of South Mills? Over 300 attended a lecture at MOA a few years ago and around 100 paid for a bus tour of the route they followed. Brochures created for the event are available at the Visitor's Center on US 17 north of South Mills.

The Camden County commissioners approved the creation of a county museum 2-3 years ago and room was set aside for it when the old fire…

MOA Living History Day

Posted by Bruce Long on February 26, 2016 at 11:11am 0 Comments

Attendance at the Feb. 20th Living History Day at the Museum of the Albemarle was disappointing. The estimate among the displayers was 300-400 attended the show. Members of this board present included Charles McDonald, Philip Madre, Jerry Roxbury, Larry Floyd , Wanda Lassiter, Adam Parker, Ray Etheridge, and Mike Ross. Larry was set up in the spot normally occupied by Walter White. He had a nice tribute to Walter on his display table.

The Battle of Roanoke Island book sales

In talking to Mike Zatarga at his book signing during the Museum of the Albemarle's last annual Living History Day on Feb. 20th, I learned he has sold in excess of 2000 books thus far. Not bad! It has been on the market less than a year. It is available at the History Press (online), the Museum of the Albemarle gift shop, and the History Center Gift Shop at Manteo's Festival Park.

Book demand

Posted by Bruce Long on November 8, 2015 at 6:07pm 0 Comments

I'm considering self-publishing a book on the Maple Leaf escape. My costs would run in the $600-700 range to print 100 books. Does anyone think there is enough local interest to support such a venture? At what price point are folks most likely to buy such a book. It would have 120-140 pages.

Are Civil War LIving History Days a thing of the past?

Posted by Bruce Long on November 8, 2015 at 6:00pm 2 Comments

There used to be Civil War Living History Days at Festival Park in Manteo, the Museum of the Albemarle in Elizabeth City, in Currituck County, at Hatteras, and in Plymouth. The one at Manteo died about three years ago, Currituck is having problems finding a venue, MOA plans for the 2016 event to be their last, and who knows how long the Plymouth event will last without Harry as a driving force. Publishers churned out a glut of Civil War titles to cash in on the Sesquicentennial. Has the…
