Event Details

Special performance by 46th Pennsylvania Regiment Band (Logan Guards). Since 1995, this reenacting group from Altoona has brought to life the music of the Civil War. Come hear period music performed on 19th century instruments and learn about the history of regimental bands in the Civil War.

Regimental bands like that of the 46th helped regulate army life, keep soldiers in step while marching, and maintain morale. The Logan Guards, a militia organized in Lewistown, were among the Pennsylvania militia troops to be the first to arrive in Washington, D.C., after the war broke out in 1861. They formed the 46th Pennsylvania Regiment, which recruited from across the state, and participated in campaigns in the Shenandoah Valley.

This outdoor concert will tentatively take place in front of the Lefevre House at Historic Hanna’s Town.

ADMISSION: $5 per person, free for those who come in Civil War period clothing and children 5 and under. Reenactment admission includes concert admission.
