This is Curtis Cole at the
Duplin County 250th Anniversary parade in Kenansville, NC in April 2002. Curtis has ancestors from Duplin County who fought on both sides of the war -- Confederates in North Carolina units, and an
uncle in a Wisconsin regiment whose family had moved to Wisconsin in the 1830's.
Our reenactment unit, the
Cape Fear Living History Society, has participated in the Christmas Candlelight Tours at Liberty Hall in Kenansville since those tours were begun about twenty years ago.
"Captain Buster" is an active surfer and kayaker. He has participated in reenacting since 1998. He has only taken up the mandolin since the early part of 2002.
