Raw recruits along with veteran soldiers occupied Hagerstown City Park Saturday, but none meant any harm.
They were just preparing for another re-enactment season this summer.
The soldiers' heavy woolen uniforms seemed more appropriate in Saturday's blustery, late-March chill than in hot, humid July when most Civil War re-enactors do their thing.
Saturday was also a perfect day to train newcomers, said Jay Henson, captain of the 7th Maryland Regiment Volunteer Infantry unit. Henson was working with about a dozen re-enactors Saturday.
