Thunder in the Woods – the Dance


Saturday night – what do you do for entertainment??

The Thunder in the Woods Civil War reenactment solved that problem for a number of folks in Corydon, Iowa.  The ladies and gents got decked out their finest and went to the Prairie Trails Museum ready for some old-timey music and a Civil War period dance.


The air was filled with sweet sounds as the band – a base, a banjo, a fiddle and a guitar – played.  Old tunes came to life and the melodies put a smile on everyone’s face.  Confederates and Federals united to enjoy the evening as the men and women went back and forth, twirling and spinning.  They did the Virginia reel.  They swayed to the gentle swells of a waltz.  They visited and laughed the night away.
