Sponsored by the Mathews County Civil War Sesquicentennial Committee and the Mathews Historical Society, the four hour program included a scavenger hunt, hands-on activities, a horse and wagon ride around historic court green with Vernon Ashberry, and talks by Walter Scott Hunley and Bill Brockner. About a dozen children took part in the fun, including, from left, Jasmine Marcellus, Henry Barnett and Spencer Baird, led here by a period-clothed Marilyn Iglesisas, vice president of the Capt. Sally Tompkins Chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Photo by Bill Nachman.
