The role of African Americans in the Civil War and Revolutionary re-enactment

Another interesting tip from the Charlotte Observer. Saturday, August 6th from 10AM through 3 PM, re-enactors from the NC 6th Regiment will hold a Revolutionary War re-enactment. (Unclear if a specific battle, or just general camp-life, what a Revolutionary engagement would look like.)

Also, Vernon Herron, an African-American genealogy lecturer will present two topics on African-American involvement in the Civil War in Mecklenburg County.

Both of these are free and open to the public and take place at Sugaw Creek Presbyterian Church, which is at 101 W. Sugar Creek Rd. Charlotte. The lectures will take place in the fellowship hall. More information on the Sugaw Creek School House (on the Church Property) and more on the location itself can be found here.
