Hi Folks!

I realize this is a bit of an "ad" but it comes with a historical flair.

This being the Sesquicentennial of the Civil War and all, it happens that a civil war reenacting unit (Salem Light Infantry) and a troupe that studies and performs historical dancing (Commonwealth Vintage Dance) will commemorate with a Levee Dinner and Ball at historic Hamilton Hall in Salem, Massachusetts

This will be the evening of Saturday, October 15, 2011 at 6PM

The historical Salem Light Infantry "Salem Zouaves" were among the first volunteer militias to come to Lincoln's call at the start of the Civil War in 1861, and served as Massachusetts Militia for 90 days, returning home in August 1861. Soldiers of the unit held a Levee and Ball at historic Hamilton Hall in Salem to celebrate their return.

The SLI hosted several dances and functions at Hamilton Hall for many years before and after the Civil War. Activities, demonstrations, dances and even the menu have been inspired by historical dances and events held at the hall by the SLI.

Pre-Registration is required. More information at the CVD website.
