The 7th Virginia Regiment was here on May 30th, 2009 at the Historic Gloucester Courthouse circle demonstrating what life was like back during the American Revolution. These guys really know their history. Some of the demonstrations included 18th century medicine, food, the making of cloth, marching and shooting demonstrations and encampment life.
The 7th Virginia Regiment performs this service once every year. We were fortunate enough to get to meet and photograph a good number of the days demonstrations and we have a few videos we still need to put together. We will be creating a special web site hosting these pictures and videos and will announce the site once it is complete.
Chuck Thompson and TTC Media are creating an Historic Church Driving Tour that will feature some of the nations most incredible early American Architecture and history. The driving tour is comprised of SE Virginia historical sites and monuments such as Historic Christ Church in Weems, Historic St Luke's of Smithfield, Bruton Parish Church in Williamsburg and two of Gloucester's very own, Ware Episcopal Church established in 1652 and Abingdon Episcopal Church established in 1650. Though neither one of these sites are tourist destinations, they represent incredible architectural significance and historical value.
We have spent a great deal of time and travel going around and shooting all the historic churches we could locate. We are just about finished shooting all the churches we were able to locate. Some are not even mentioned anywhere. We found them the hard way by driving by and taking a closer look and finding well hidden gems mixed between the fantastic monuments. We have only 2 sites left. Jamestown and Hampton. We will be covering Hampton this weekend and Jamestown we are working on getting covered next week. Then each individual church will have it's own site. From there we will be building the main site which will be a driving tour of some of our nations most incredible treasures.
We expect the main site to be up and running in about 2 to 3 more weeks from this writing. Once the site is up, we will make the announcement and let everyone know.

AARRGH! Those scurvy dogs known as Blackbeard's Crew are getting ready to raid Hampton, Virginia this weekend. Their biggest event of the year held annually in the city of Hampton, this will be their 10th anniversary. With over 100 pirates coming in from around the nation to join in on the raid, we are all in for some series trouble from these scalawags. Expect some serious sea battles, pirate songs, fencing or sword fightin and an overall great time provided they don't loot ya. We'll be there taking a ton of photos and videos of this event.
Hope to see you there. Oh yes, before we forget, we have a web site up of pictures and where we will be hosting videos for these dogs, CLICK HERE to go and see it.
Is our educational system keeping up with these facts? I'm willing to bet not. See the video. You will be amazed.

The Yorktown Memorial Day service was well planned out. Men and woman dressed in uniforms of past wars of our nation to honor fallen soldiers, the 21 gun salute by the various costumed men and the taps by a Civil War soldier were well done.
The Yorktown Fife and Drum Corp gives an outstanding performance at the Memorial Service in the Historic Yorktown area.
Congressman Rob Wittman was at the Memorial event held in Yorktown on May 25th, 2009. Pictured here with a few fans from the Yorktown fife and Drum Corp.

Colonial Williamsburg hosted their annual national fife and drums competition this past weekend. We were there on Saturday May 16th, 2009 and were able to capture some great footage of many of the events. This video starts out with the Colonial Williamsburg Fife and Drums Alumni, hence the street cloths on these folks, followed by the Connecticut Regimen. We have more videos to put up on our You Tube channel, we just have to get through processing them. If you want to see our channel on You Tube, please CLICK HERE.
