I attended a living history event hosted by the Armygroundforces.org at Fort Mott, NJ. They portray the 21st Coast Artillery. I dropped in as a 92nd CA Philippine Scout from Corregidor visiting as an "observer."
Many thanks go out to Andy Grant. He's the park ranger and half Filipino. It was good to see Col. Shawn Welch again, their commander. They were in Reading, PA earlier in the month and generated a lot of interest when they turned on their searchlight at night.

They had a nurse too... An actual nursing student in a nurse impression. If I recall one of the guys wasn't feeling well. I think he was faking it (grin).
